Château Pavie Macquin 2020
Château Pavie Macquin 2020
Neal Martin Vinous 91-93 – "The 2020 Pavie-Macquin has a boisterous, attention-grabbing bouquet of opulent blueberry and kirsch scents, a touch of orange pith developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, certainly one of the most exotic wines from the estate in recent years, and a luscious finish, where I would like to feel more of the Cabernet Franc. This needs a very prudent élevage."
Jane Anson Decanter 95 – "There is a richness here, a powerful spread of black fruits, that grabs you from the start. Perhaps less razor precision than the Larcis Ducasse (also part of the Nicolas Thienpont stable) but more width and depth of flavour. This has texture and brambled power, sappy saline on the finish, touches of austerity, graphite laced through with grilled cassis and aniseed. Some reduction at this point, will clear over barrel ageing. Tasted several times, and each time the pumice stone and chalk of limestone grips on and will not let go. A yield of 31hl/ha."
Lisa Perrotti-Brown Wine Advocate 96-98 – "The 2020 Pavie Macquin has an opaque purple-black color, exploding from the glass with an intoxicating perfume of violets, Ceylon tea, forest floor and eucalyptus over a core of blackberry preserves, Morello cherries and stewed plum, plus wafts of crushed rocks and unsmoked cigars. The medium to full-bodied palate shimmers with energetic red and black fruit layers and loads of floral and earthy sparks, framed by exquisitely ripe, finely grained tannins and amazing tension, finishing with a long-lingering perfume of black fruits. A real head-turner!"
Chris Kissack Winedoctor 96-98 – "An estate on the limestone slopes close to the town, this is made by Nicolas Thienpont, and it is a traditional blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has a gloriously dense and opaque black plum hue, with a degree of saturation. There is no shortage of concentration on the nose, the plum and blackberry fruit bordering on baked such is its intensity, and it comes laced with liquorice, dark chocolate and black olive intensity, but it is also lifted by notes of violets and lavender. The palate is full of crème de cassis, crushed black plum, soot and liquorice, but with those fragrant flowers and spices seen on the nose, and made more complex with the addition of blood orange, white peach and cherry blossom. Great intensity here, the wine textured but full of dark grip, and wrapped up by a ripe and tightly packed body of tannins. The finish is all black fruit and blood orange again, yielding eventually to the tannins, which grip the mouth through the length. This is a quite exceptional Pavie-Macquin, a barrel sample which suggests this has huge potential. The alcohol here is declared as 14.5%. Absolutely top work from the team here – chapeau! I tasted two samples, including one sent direct from the château, and both were equally stunning; I can’t comprehend scoring this any lower than I have."
