(From 2007 Vintage) A beautiful perfume filled wine with licorice, black raspberries, jam and coffee. This also comes through on the palate, along with black plums and anise. A lovely elegant wine from Saint Emilion.
(From 2000 Vintage) A wine of great density, concentration, and intensity, the opaque blue/purple 2000 Pavie Macquin needs considerable aeration, but with decanting the prodigious bouquet of graphite, camphor, blackberry, blueberry, mineral, coffee, and smoky oak finally makes an appearance. Persuasive, expansive, full-bodied, and muscular, this enormously endowed, rich wine looks set for a long life, at least three decades.
