Quite expressive offering bright blueberry and raspberry aromas and flavors with lots of lightly toasted spice flittering through the long silky finish. Showing lovely purity this is a really beautiful tender expression...

A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc the Pavie-Macquin has a very sensual bouquet very pure with raspberry wild strawberry and red cherries. This is a very pretty nose and the oak is well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins an impressive ball of sweet red fruit at its centre and fine almost filigree tannins at its centre. I like the focus the joie-de-vivre of Nicolas Thienpont's wine. This is an exceptional wine for the vintage. Tasted April 2012.

This is rich and concentrated with loads of fruit and ripe tannins. Full body and a long, long finish. Beautiful intensity. Better in 2017 but so juicy and drinkable now. Nice and balanced for the vintage.

This well-known St.-Emilion estate has turned out a dense purple-colored blend of 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Super-concentrated, but not over-extracted, with an essence of blackberry, blueberry and black raspberry fruit interwoven with dusty, chalky minerality as well as a floral note, this full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic, pure, layered, impressive 2011 will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It can be enjoyed over the following two decades. 92+ - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Average vine age is 40 years planted in clay and limestone soils over deep limestone bedrock. Seductive freshly-picked strawberries plums and blackberry on the nose carry with perfect ripeness onto the palate. A lot of structure with fine tannins this is a full-bodied expression of the vintage. Approachable 2-3 years after release but will continue to improve over the next 10-15 years. Both Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt consult. Enjoy 2015-2030. Tasted twice.
