Château Pavie Macquin Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005 (1500ml)

$599

It appears consumers can't go wrong with any 2005 with the word "Pavie" in its name. This outstanding terroir, elevated to Premier Grand Cru Classe status in St.-Emilion's reclassification, is run with impeccable attention to detail by Nicolas Thienpont, who is assisted by winemaking guru, Stephane Derenoncourt. The 2005 Pavie Macquin may turn out to be this duo's finest wine to date. This is a moderately large vineyard (37 acres) for the area, and the blend tends to be 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. A black/purple color is accompanied by aromas of charcoal, burning embers, crushed rocks, sweet, pure, blueberries and blackberries, chocolaty creme de cassis, and licorice. It possesses massive concentration, phenomenal levels of tannin, and good acidity... Robert Parker

Just awesome! Just a baby and will only get better with 'proper' aging. This is a big boy wine with massive tannins and tremendous depth! The score will be higher in 10 years!

(17/20) Вино с букетом ароматов джема из чёрных ягод, чернослива, кедра и черного перца, в развитии появляется нота йода. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и интенсивными танинами. Продолжительное послевкусие. Великолепно!

Perfect cork, perfect fill, perfect label. Imperfect wine. Tasted like dead prunes and raisins... Slightly cooked and flawed. What a shame.
