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. Rating: 91-93 Points; Date Tasted: Apr 2016; Drink: 2020-2040; Neal Martin; Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

The purity of fruit and focus in this wine is so impressive. Full body, powerful and presistent. It goes on for minutes here. Rating 96-97 Points: Date Tasted: Mar 2016; James Suckling
