Chateau Pavie Macquin Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2011 94pts
94 Points James Suckling
This is rich and concentrated with loads of fruit and ripe tannins. Full body and a long, long finish. Beautiful intensity. Better in 2017 but so juicy and drinkable now. Nice and balanced for the vintage.
93 Points Wine Spectator
This has lovely energy, with the vintage's up-front briary feel pulling the flavors of plum sauce, blackberry coulis and cherry preserves along while anise, apple wood and fruitcake notes fill in behind them. Offers a solid, juicy feel through the finish, revealing floral and incense hints in reserve. Rock-solid.—Non-blind Pavie Macquin vertical (December 2014). Best from 2018 through 2028.
93 Points Wine Enthusiast
An elegant wine, it manages to embrace its rich fruit and still show style. There is an opulent texture, driven by ripe Merlot, yet the wine is also fresh and crisp, full of black currant fruit. Drink from 2017.
92 Points Wine Advocate
This well-known St.-Emilion estate has turned out a dense purple-colored blend of 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Super-concentrated, but not over-extracted, with an essence of blackberry, blueberry and black raspberry fruit interwoven with dusty, chalky minerality as well as a floral note, this full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic, pure, layered, impressive 2011 will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It can be enjoyed over the following two decades.
Blend: 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
