A comparatively small Chateau in Bordeaux, Pavie Macquin has only 15 hectares of vineyards neighboring Pavie and Pavie Decesse. The wines produced have improved in quality over the past decade and have received worldwide appreciation and demand. The improvement are backed by two great men - Nicholas Thienpoint from Vieux Chateau Certan and famous oenologist Stéphane Derenoncourt who is in charge of winemaking as well as consultation. Having applied biodynamic methods, Pavie Macquin's wines are full-bodied, complete and powerful from Saint-Emilion and now regarded as Saint Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe B.
Blended with 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, we have 24 bottles of 2005 Pavie Macquin to offer today, again at a very competitive price! Awarded an excellent score of 96+pts from Robert Parker and also 95pts from Vinous Stephen Tanzer and Ian D’Agata, this would be a sad miss if you not to take any from this parcel -
2005 Pavie Macquin
HK$950 per bottle, 24 bottles available (Best Price In The World#)
96+ pts Robert Parker
Inky bluish/purple in color, Pavie Macquin produced a prodigious effort from St.-Emilion in 2005. Its crushed, chalky rock minerality, massive body, and high tannin make for a wine to forget for another decade. Super-loaded, concentrated and powerful, this wine should turn out great, but patience will be required. The blackberry and cassis fruit are there in abundance, but so is a massive structure.
95 pts Stephen Tanzer
Bright ruby-red. Superripe, perfumed nose dominated by griotte cherry, raspberry and cocoa. Lush, smooth and impressively concentrated, with enough acidity and minerality to leaven the wine's almost port-like ripeness (the pH here, always low, is barely 3.55 in 2005, according to Nicolas Thienpont). Very deep flavors of sweet cherry and dark berries carry through on the mounting, palate-saturating finish. A massive example of Pavie-Macquin whose thick coat of baby fat is currently making the wine hard to view. This one is going to require a minimum of a decade of patience.
95 + pts Ian D'Agata
Fully saturated deep ruby-red. Brooding aromas of cassis, plum, violet, minerals and aromatic herbs hint at knockout depth and purity. Dense, rich and multi-layered, showing great precision and a seamless texture to the painfully young blackberry, cassis, truffle and mineral flavors. Finishes rich, pure and long, with hints of cocoa and balsamic vinegar. This Pavie Macquin is developing at a snail's pace. The product of a very gentle extraction and a longer cuvaison than usual, this is an absolutely memorable, outstanding wine.
