Chateau Pavie Macquin St. Emilion

From Bordeaux

Vintage: 2012
Description: Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Pavie Macquin St. Emilion 2012 Rated 94 by Vinous Media The 2012 Pavie Macquin is pure elegance. Silky tannins and a supple, layered personality give the 2012 much of its inviting personality. With time in the glass, the 2012 turns a bit darker and more masculine. Dark cherry, pomegranate, smoke and sweet floral notes are some of the signatures. The Grand Vin is a big step up from the second wine. The blend is 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Stéphane Derenoncourt is the consulting oenologist. (Vinous) Rated 93 by Wine Advocate Another wine made by the superstar guru Nicolas Thienpont, this well-situated property of 37 acres on the high clay/limestone plateau in St.-Emilion has produced a blend of 84 % Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. A masculine, virile style of wine with an inky deep purple color, lots of crème de cassis and crushed rock and high tannin. This is thick and powerful, with a layered mouthfeel, good purity, earthiness and spice. Forget it for 4-5 years and drink if over the following two decades.
