Wine Advocate (Neal Martin): 91-93 Punkte
The Château Pavie-Macquin 2014 is a blend of 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped between 6 and 14 October at 36 hectoliters per hectare. The nose is actually a distant cousin of Château Canon '14: very pure and delineated, quite sensual thanks to the embroidered 60% new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a touch of white pepper lending a little spiciness. There is pleasing density on the finish, if not quite the complexity of either Canon or say, Château Pavie. I actually improves in the glass, gaining more composure and nuance, the aftertaste lengthening thanks to its saltiness. This is a fine Pavie-Macquin that should offer 10 to 15 years of pleasure, possibly more and I expect it will land at the top of my banded score.
Decanter: 17,5/20 Punkte (92/100 Punkte)
85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet. Restrained and undemonstrative but less power and more refinement this year. Fresh and minerally with a clean persistent finish. A Pavie-Macquin with a feminine edge.
Wine Spectator: 93-96 Punkte
Well-packed, with ample boysenberry, blackberry and raspberry flavors that course along, carried by anise and singed apple wood notes that stay reserved through the finish. Squarely fruit-driven, but exhibits great purity and energy.—J.M.
Weinwisser: 17/20 Punkte
85 % Merlot, 14 % Cabernet Franc, 1 % Cabernet Sauvignon. Sattes Purpur-Granat, dicht in der Mitte, lila Schimmer aussen. Faszinierendes Bouquet, gekochte Johannisbeeren und Cassis, Kräutertee, zeigt eine schöne Konzentration an. Im Gaumen satt, fleischig, aber auch mit einer gewissen Strenge, respektive Rasse ausgestattet.
Trinkgenuss: 2024 bis 2040
