2010 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $175)

SKU #1067162 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A towering, statuesque wine, the 2010 Pavie-Macquin is distinguished by its vertical explosiveness and soaring intensity. Red cherry jam, plums and dried flowers are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up as the 2010 gains breadth over time. Naturally, the 2010 is still a very young wine, but it is incredibly impressive just the same, not to mention one of the highlights of the morning. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This takes the fruit of 2009 but harnesses it even more quickly, with rivets of graphite and apple wood studding the core of plum sauce, blackberry reduction and raspberry pâte de fruit. Ample singed apple wood lines the finish, melded wonderfully with the fruit, while the minerality lingers on and on in the background, waiting in reserve. Around it all, a beguiling violet note dances. The combination of power and purity is a wonderful thing. (JM) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Gorgeous nose with great complexity. Blackberry, licorice and a steely mineral note. Lots of chalk, nutmeg and violets too. Dense and full-bodied on the palate with a beautiful fruit and a sumptuous fruity finish that just goes on and on. Velvety tannins and layered texture with lots of raw licorice. Drink from 2018. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is always an extremely masculine, dense, burly wine, and the 2010, which tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol (just slightly under that of the 2009), has a final blend of 80% Merlot and the rest virtually all Cabernet Franc, with just 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Loads of crushed rock and chalkiness, along with licorice, black truffle, smoked game and black fruits dominate the aromatics and flavor. Backward, formidably endowed, full-bodied and almost atypically massive and huge, with gargantuan extraction, this is a wine for patient connoisseurs to forget about for close to a decade. Anticipated maturity: 2022-2040+. (RP) 95+ Inner quote mark (2/2013)

Made by Nicolai Thienpont (Larcis-Ducasse, Beauséjour-Duffau). Cinnamon, red cherry, round with loads of cherry fruit; this wine has an elegance about it. ***. At UGC: Beautiful wine, with a very pretty nose of red fruit and flowers that's more Burgundian than Bordelaise. On the palate the wine has laser-beam focused red fruit, mouthwatering acidity and vibrancy. This feels like a synthesis of Burgundy and Bordeaux. One of the prettiest wines at the tasting. I am very impressed.
