The 2015 Pavie Macquin is another tremendous wine from Nicolas Thienpont and his team. Inky, rich and voluptuous the 2015 is endowed with remarkable depth and plenty of underlying energy to back it all up. The flavors are dark, bold and incisive, as are the tannins. The 2015 is going to require quite a bit of time to come together, but it is impressive, that much is obvious. Pavie Macquin is 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between September 29 and October 17 and aged in 60% new oak. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Pavie-Macquin is a blend of 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 29 September and 17 October at 40 hl/ha. It has an almost decadent bouquet, perhaps more lascivious than the 2015 Larcis-Ducasse tasted alongside (as part of Nicolas Thienpont's "stable"), with fig-tinged red cherry and blackberry fruit, powerful but perhaps needing to muster a little more finesse? The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet core of citrus-fresh fruit. There is more nuance and precision here at the moment, fleshy and sensual with blood orange and cassis layered over the exuberant finish. It should be a delicious Saint Emilion this year, although I feel that the Larcis-Ducasse will have the sophistication and more longevity. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2040

The purity of fruit and focus in this wine is so impressive. Full body, powerful and presistent. It goes on for minutes here. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

A pure style, with a bright cassis aroma and a core of plum and bitter cherry notes, allied to a lightly chalky spine. Long and refined, showing lovely cut and precision. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Nicolas and his son Cyrille Thienpont make the wine for the Corre-Macquin family. 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Sweet and rich on the nose. Then marked acidity on the palate. Rather different from and fresher than some earlier vintages. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2038

Same stable as Tertre-Rôteboeuf in St-Emilion. Forget that it's from Côtes de Bourg – this is a grand vin! Opulent and rich but with a serious structure as well. Rounded tannins provide a smooth, creamy texture while the limestone terroir and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon give character and freshness. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2035
