1990 Pavie Macquin

Average critic rating : 91.5 points



I have been extolling the virtues of these wines since the late eighties. Extremely old vines, organic farming, and some of the lowest yields in Bordeaux produce densely-colored, highly-extracted, exceptionally pure and elegant wines that possess a Burgundian-like texture and complexity. The 1990 Pavie-Macquin is fatter, sweeter, and riper, with its pronounced smoky oak component intertwined with jammy black-raspberry and curranty aromas and flavors. The wine's sweet fruit (from ripeness, not sugar), and concentrated, medium to full-bodied, low acid style, suggests early maturity, but the wine is still youthful and unevolved. While already delicious, this wine will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring. It will be at its peak between 2000-2008. Wine Advocate.February, 1997



All in finesse. Dark ruby color, with fresh and clear aromas of mineral, spice and berry. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long finish of cherry and chocolate.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2000
