The 2014 Pavie Macquin is just as sensual from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, gracious and expressive, the 2014 has it all. Black cherry, plum, smoke, mocha and a host of dark-toned flavors all blossom in the glass... The 2014 Pavie Macquin is just as sensual from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, gracious and expressive, the 2014 has it all. Black cherry, plum, smoke, mocha and a host of dark-toned flavors all blossom in the glass. The 2014 offers a striking combination of power and finesse, with plenty of power to burn. This is another unqualified success from estate manager Nicolas Thienpont and consulting winemaker Stéphane Derenoncourt. The blend is 85 % Merlot, 14 % Cabernet Franc and 1 % Cabernet Sauvignon.-- Neal Martin

The purity and clarity to the nose of this wine are really exceptional with crushed berries, cherries and currants. Fruit and density are so impressive, yet this is so linear on the center palate, which gives it direction... The purity and clarity to the nose of this wine are really exceptional with crushed berries, cherries and currants. Fruit and density are so impressive, yet this is so linear on the center palate, which gives it direction and focus. Fabulous. Better than 2009? Drink in 2022, but hard not to drink now.

The effect is a juicy wine that has a tough edge. This will take time to develop.

The plum, boysenberry and raspberry fruit is very aromatic, carrying a glossy sheen as this glides along, picking up subtle anise, alder and tobacco notes slowly but steadily through the finish.

The plum, boysenberry and raspberry fruit is very aromatic, carrying a glossy sheen as this glides along, picking up subtle anise, alder and tobacco notes slowly but steadily through the finish. A graphite edge is buried deep. This should age gracefully thanks to the purity and balance. Best from 2022 through 2032. 4,250 cases made. –JM

Already showing some maturity in the color, the wine is medium/full bodied, fresh, sweet, and refined, with sweet,, spicy, black raspberry, plum pure cherries, and crushed rocks in the finish. A few years of cellaring, with definitely make this more interesting. Although, this is going to be fun to drink early.

Fresh and inviting right out of the gate, with dark berry and cherry fruit accented by anise, spice, bakers chocolate and espresso. The silky palate is packed with dense red and black fruit, chocolate, cedar, leather, earth and stones, finishing with mouth-coating tannins at this early stage in its development. The punch of acidity and underlying structure promise a bright future to a wine that’s impressive now, yet should truly blossom with another 5 years of age.
