So much violet and lilac aromas to this with blackberry and blueberry character, too. Full-bodied and delivering limestone, chalk and lavender on the palate. Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften... So much violet and lilac aromas to this with blackberry and blueberry character, too. Full-bodied and delivering limestone, chalk and lavender on the palate. Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften. Better in 2022.

Lush, sexy, plush and polished, the wine has all the glycerine needed to coat the glass and your palate. There is purity in the fruits and silky tannins in the finish that make this just as exciting to feel as it does to taste. One of the best vintage produced here, this should age for at least 20-25 years or longer!

From its ripe black-currant fruits through the acidity and tense tannins, to the full, generous aftertaste, the wine impresses. It has great fruit, balanced acidity and a good potential. Drink from 2025.

Ripe, pure and expressive, with a beautiful panoply of loganberry, plum and red currant preserve flavors that meld seamlessly with anise and singed apple wood details and a subtle chalky spine. A bright floral accent on the finish lifts this up a register and lets it sail on, holding that note. Best from 2020 through 2040. From France. — J.M.

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pavie Macquin bursts forth from the glass with profound notions of plum preserves, fruit cake, Indian spices and chargrilled meat with touches of black soil, mocha, cedar chest and unsmoked cigars. Full-bodied, voluptuously fruited and decadently styled in the mouth, the packed layers of black fruit preserves and exotic spices are well-matched by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness that sits comfortably in the background, finishing with great length and depth. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Tight and firm, this needs time to open and soften but there is no doubting the quality of the ingredients. Young St-Émilion can be tough to taste in great vintages, as they often present an unrelenting wall of fruit, but this is pristine - the tannins are flexible and the power is well balanced.

(90? points) The 2015 Pavie-Macquin has an extrovert, exuberant and lush bouquet with savory red fruit, loam, roasted chestnut and mint, but it deteriorates and oxidizes in the glass. The palate is initially rounded and sumptuous on the entry, and very supple tannin with pure red cherries, kirsch, fig and raisin notes countered by the acidity. Unlike the aromatics this remains attractive with no signs of oxidation. If only the nose had not fallen apart - hence the question mark against my score. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin
