Saint Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, Château Pavie Macquin 2014

DKK 719,00 inkl. moms

Saint Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, Château Pavie Macquin 2014 has a concentrated bouquet with layers of blackberry and raspberry coulis, infused with potpourri and incense. There is something almost forbidding about the aromatics at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe red berry fruit, a fine line of acidity, although it feels a little soft on the finish when I needed more precision and backbone. Let’s see how this ages in bottle, because I suspect that it will gain more density and structure with 2-3 years of bottle age. Drink date 2020-2040

Score: 91 Neal Martin

The purity and clarity to the nose of this wine are really exceptional with crushed berries, cherries and currants. Fruit and density are so impressive, yet this is so linear on the center palate, which gives it direction and focus. Fabulous. Better than 2009? Drink in 2022, but hard not to drink now.

The 2014 Pavie Macquin is just as sensual from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, gracious and expressive, the 2014 has it all. Black cherry, plum, smoke, mocha and a host of dark-toned flavors all blossom in the glass. The 2014 offers a striking combination of power and finesse, with plenty of power to burn. This is another unqualified success from estate manager Nicolas Thienpont and winemaker David Suire. The blend is 85 % Merlot, 14 % Cabernet Franc and 1 % Cabernet Sauvignon.
