2010: Although not as potent alcoholically as its 2009 counterpart (14.5% in 2010 versus 15% in 2009) the 2010 is still a very big wine.

The final blend was 85% Merlot 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon and production was slightly more than 3400 cases. This black/purple-tinged wine exhibits lots of minerality (from this terroir's clay and limestone soils) as well as the entire spectrum of black fruits. Full-bodied and backward it's like drinking crushed limestone/chalk when you taste this intense tannic powerful wine. It will require 8-10 years of cellaring and should evolve for 35-40+ years.

This is flashy with overt blueberry fig and boysenberry aromas and flavors but plenty of polish and poise too thanks to alluring incense and licorice notes. There's lots of range and grip. Really beautiful. -J.M.

Super compacted with incredible intensity of minerals black fruits licorice and spices. Full and dense. Wild fruit that goes on for minutes. A little firm as always but will open nicely.

The Pavie Macquin has a gorgeous lifted opulent bouquet with pure dark berries boysenberry and dark plums with superb delineation. Seductive indeed. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe juicy tannins layers of pure vanilla-tinged red fruits with a harmonious silky finish that retains freshness and vibrancy. This is yet another lovely Pavie-Macquin.

Organically farmed and hand-harvested from Oct. 15th to 20th. Whole berries are moved to tank by conveyor belt where they are fermented in 80% open-top oak and 20% cement tanks. 70% new oak and 30% one-wine-old barrels.14.5% alcohol. Opaque color with purple rim powerful aromas of black cherries and dark fruits quickly unfurl to reveal enticing layers of complexity. Intensely flavored with soft rounded textures this release has an incredibly long finish that is seamlessly connected to the midpalate. As with almost all wines made by Stephane Derencourt and Nicholas Thienpont the finest of tannins are immersed in some soft dark fruits to conclude the incredible tasting experience. Approachable soon the peak drinking window is between 2020-2030. Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt manage this estate.
