1994 Pavie-Macquin, St-Emilion

SKU #1016395 91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1994 Pavie-Macquin is the best of these wines from the early 1990s. Still deep and fleshy (for a wine of its age), the 1994 has enough depth to hold on for another few years. Crushed flowers, tobacco, cedar, mint and dried red berry fruit all open up nicely in this mid-weight, expressive, fully mature Saint-Émilion. Stephane Derenoncourt describes 1994 as a year with no summer and no sun. All things considered, the 1994 has held up well. At the time only eight hectares of vineyards were in production. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This well-situated estate, with a high percentage of old vines and uncompromising biodynamic viticultural practices, represents a wine that could be called the Chateau Lafleur of St.-Emilion. These are powerful, backward, tannic wines that should be purchased by those with the discipline, patience, and the requisite youthfulness to wait 10-12 years for them to round into shape. Because of their severity, these wines can be admired more than enjoyed, but their impressive old vine core of fruit, and extraordinary purity and ripeness are noteworthy. The dark ruby-colored 1994 reveals a Musigny-like nose of violets, black-cherries, and powdered stone. This tough-textured, tannic, muscular wine exudes personality and character, but it needs 6-8 years of cellaring. It may turn out to be an outstanding wine, but since bottling, the wine has become dominated by its structure and tannin, and is less of a sure thing than I thought last year. While it possesses plenty of personality and richness, it is questionable as to whether this wine will evolve gracefully, or eventually dry out. A tough call. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/1997)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features lovely mature cedar and juniper hints, with mellow dried currant and cherry fruit. Pretty sandalwood and incense notes line the finish. Fully mature, but retains enough of a supple edge to stay intriguing. (JM, Web-2007) Inner quote mark
