Barrel Tasting Well-packed, with ample boysenberry, blackberry and raspberry flavors that course along, carried by anise and singed apple wood notes that stay reserved through the finish. Squarely fruit-driven, but exhibits great purity and energy. Score range: 93-96 -JM

The Château Pavie-Macquin 2014 is a blend of 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped between 6 and 14 October at 36 hectoliters per hectare. The nose is actually a distant cousin of Château Canon '14: very pure and delineated, quite sensual thanks to the embroidered 60% new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a touch of white pepper lending a little spiciness. There is pleasing density on the finish, if not quite the complexity of either Canon or say, Château Pavie. I actually improves in the glass, gaining more composure and nuance, the aftertaste lengthening thanks to its saltiness. This is a fine Pavie-Macquin that should offer 10 to 15 years of pleasure, possibly more and I expect it will land at the top of my banded score.
