Château Pavie Macquin Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Superfocused and beautiful, like looking at Mont Blanc with a clear sky and a blanket of snow. Full and refined, with gorgeous fruit and wonderful refinement. Silky tannins. Clearly the best ever. Wine Spectator

Last week was a combo of 4th Friday and Open That Bottle Night on back to back nights. Needless to say, the lineup between both days was full of heavy hitters, so I’m only posting standout bottles. If I was served this blind, I might have taken this to high end Napa. There was quite a bit of fresh and ripe fruits here, mostly toward the blue and black side of the spectrum...sweet blueberries, freshly squeezed blackberries, sandalwood, espresso, nutmeg and fig. Oak was fairly noticeable but didn’t detract. Nothing shy about this. Pop with a lengthy decant or hold for another 5yrs.

Lush blueberry, and ripe plum at the forefront. Big mid palate and round supple tannins. Lasting finish that never seems to end.
