Reviews for 2012 Pavie-Macquin Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2015
Offers a solid, packed feel, with dense plum sauce, licorice and blackberry preserve flavors, pushed by ganache and graphite details. Despite the dense and fleshy feel, there’s serious purity here. A violet note mingles... Offers a solid, packed feel, with dense plum sauce, licorice and blackberry preserve flavors, pushed by ganache and graphite details. Despite the dense and fleshy feel, there’s serious purity here. A violet note mingles with a lightly chalky echo through the lengthy finish. A terrific effort for the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2027.—J.M.

There is a purity and directness to this wine with blueberry, sliced-mushroom and floral character. Full body, firm tannins and a long and intense finish. Racy.

Silky tannins and a supple, layered personality give the 2012 much of its inviting personality. With time in the glass, the 2012 turns a bit darker and more masculine. Dark cherry, pomegranate, smoke and sweet floral notes are some of the signatures. The Grand Vin is a big step up from the second wine. The blend is 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Stéphane Derenoncourt is the consulting oenologist.

A masculine, virile style of wine with an inky deep purple color, lots of crème de cassis and crushed rock and high tannin. This is thick and powerful, with a layered mouthfeel, good purity, earthiness and spice. Forget it for 4-5 years and drink if over the following two decades. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
