1995 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion

SKU #110441 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Sauvage aromas of red- and blackcurrant, roast coffee, licorice and game. Bright, pure dark berry flavor is juicy and sharply delineated. Really comes alive in the mouth. Finishes very long and subtle, with berry and floral notes and even, mouthdusting tannins. This is much more tender today than the lower-pH '94 made here. Like the above, this shows a lot of character.  (6/1998)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Intense blackberry aroma, with dark chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and good fruit. Lots of wood on the palate still, but I appreciate the racy style. Tight. --'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. (Web-2007)

Jancis Robinson

 Purplish and quite light. Pale rim. Rather feral and different. Gamey and finishes very dry.  (10/2005)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Made in a style similar to the 1996, the 1995 reveals copious quantities of black fruits, obvious old vine intensity (note the minerals and deep mid-palate), but mouthsearing levels of tannin will only be enjoyed by masochists. There are many good things about this wine, but the elevated tannin level is cause for concern. If the tannin melts away and the fruit holds, this will be an outstanding effort. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025. (RP)  (2/1998)

Additional Information:



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
