This well-known St.-Emilion estate has turned out a dense purple-colored blend of 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Super-concentrated, but not over-extracted, with an essence of blackberry, blueberry and black raspberry fruit interwoven with dusty, chalky minerality as well as a floral note, this full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic, pure, layered, impressive 2011 will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It can be enjoyed over the following two decades. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the Pavie-Macquin has a very sensual bouquet, very pure with raspberry, wild strawberry and red cherries. This is a very pretty nose and the oak is well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, an impressive ball of sweet red fruit at its centre and fine, almost filigree tannins at its centre. I like the focus, the joie-de-vivre of Nicolas Thienpont’s wine. This is an exceptional wine for the vintage. Tasted April 2012.Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Fascinating nose of black truffles, fresh citrus fruit, and minerals. Cocoa too. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and a medium chewy finish. This has an impressive finish for the vintage. jamessuckling.com

Quite expressive, offering bright blueberry and raspberry aromas and flavors, with lots of lightly toasted spice flittering through the long, silky finish. Showing lovely purity, this is a really beautiful, tender expression for the vintage. WineSpectator.com

Pure damson jam on the nose. Fresher on the palate but a bit lean for the sturdiness of the tannins. A hard chew with the acidity marked and accentuating the tannins. Really tart on the finish. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Contrast of ripe, 'confit' aromatics and firm, muscular structure. A steely acidity emphasising the latter. Volume and depth but a bit of a bruiser that will need time. Drink 2020-2035. Decanter.com

We heard some rude things said about Pavie Macquin but we found it to be very brightand lively with a nose of damsons and red fruit, toasty charcoal and nice fine tannin and a lovely crunchy quality to the fruit. Very good.
