2015 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1253281 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark So much violet and lilac aromas to this with blackberry and blueberry character, too. Full-bodied and delivering limestone, chalk and lavender on the palate. Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften. Better in 2022. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the highlights of the vintage, the 2015 Pavie Macquin is positively stellar. A veritable explosion of super-ripe red cherry, rose petal and mocha makes a strong opening statement. Silky on the palate, with soft tannins and tons of sheer exoticism, the 2015 is stunningly beautiful. All of the signatures of the site are turned up to the maximum in this vivid, head-spinning wine from estate manager Nicolas Thienpont and his team. Don't miss it! (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe, pure and expressive, with a beautiful panoply of loganberry, plum and red currant preserve flavors that meld seamlessly with anise and singed apple wood details and a subtle chalky spine. A bright floral accent on the finish lifts this up a register and lets it sail on, holding that note. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Notes of cassis, toasted spice, toasty oak, and crushed flowers emerge from the 2015 Château Pavie Macquin, and it’s a rockin’ effort that marries elegance with full-bodied power and structure. With fine, fine tannin, high, yet integrated acidity, and a great mid-palate, it’s more approachable than either of the other Pavie releases, yet is still backward and unevolved. Give bottles 4-5 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following two to three decades. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pavie Macquin bursts forth from the glass with profound notions of plum preserves, fruit cake, Indian spices and chargrilled meat with touches of black soil, mocha, cedar chest and unsmoked cigars. Full-bodied, voluptuously fruited and decadently styled in the mouth, the packed layers of black fruit preserves and exotic spices are well-matched by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness that sits comfortably in the background, finishing with great length and depth. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

Tasted at our UGC event on Jan 25th, 2018. This is the first St. Emilion that I tried at the tasting and one that kept me coming back - what an introduction to a superlative vintage for the Right Bank. Showing a ton of balance and poise, it is a luxurious claret without ever going over the top insofar as concentration or extraction. Beautiful purity a depth back up a long finish in what is sure to be a highlight of this terrific vintage for the decades to come. Hard to resist young, it is one that will reward a bit of time in the cellar and can be enjoyed for the two decades following.

This property, under the guidance of Nicolas Thienpont, is on a roll. And it is priced correctly! Huge wine with Blackberry jam flavors. Tons of everything in this package. Acid, tannin, fruit-great aging potential. This is right up their with their 2010 in quality. I tend to enjoy these right bank 2015s more than most left bankers.
Drink from 2021 to 2041

Along with Larcis Ducasse the 2015 Pavie Macquin is one of the more elegant St. Emilion's out there. With incredible purity of fruit nicely mingled against a hint of oak and zippy minerality this is a beautiful wine that has a Burgundian feel while still having a Bordelaise sensibility.
Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2035
