Pavie Macquin 2006

We also list this wine because its style is in great contrast to Chateau L'Arrosse 2006, both of the same class; it is much backward. From a superbly situated on St.-Emilion's plateau, a 38-acre vineyard planted on primarily limestone and clay, this 2006 is meant for long-term ageing, unlike L' Arrosse, which is more for intermediate gratification. However, Pavie Macquin 2006 starts drinking well now.

A combination of 80% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is a backward, brawny, muscular, long-distance runner. Consumers lacking patience are advised to steer clear of this wine. Its dense purple colour is followed by graphite, sweet cassis, pen ink, and charcoal aromas. This powerful, dense, concentrated wine possesses high tannins and lots of structure. Structured and of extended fruit


RP93. The 2006 Château Pavie Macquin has a ripe, sensual bouquet with copious kirsch and blueberry scents, fine tension and poise, and a faint whiff of boot polish in the background. The palate is very elegant on the entry, pure and supple in the mouth, and succulent with vivid black cherry and dark plum notes. It is that keen line of acidity cutting through the fruit that takes this Saint Emilion to a higher level, and it comes highly recommended. Edited.
