Pavie Macquin is situated on a plateau, next to the hill of Mondot and on the edge of the Fongaban rift. The vineyard sits at an altitude of between 75 and 100 metres at its highest point. A single tenant, its neighbour to the west is Troplong Mondot with Chateau Pavie (1er G.C.C.) to the south, while to the north lies Trottevieille (1er G.C.C.).

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 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 consulting winemaker Stphane Derenoncourt. The blend is 85 % Merlot, 14 % Cabernet Franc and 1 % Cabernet Sauvignon. -Antonio Galloni, Vinous

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.
