After a cold midwinter, a cool and rainy spring, the arrival of summer was marked by very hot conditions until late July. This thankfully early episode was nothing but beneficial! The dry period intensified, causing water stress which had a particular qualitative impact on our limestone-clay terroirs. At this stage, the progress of the climate - similar to 2005 and 2010 with small and potentially concentrated grapes - led us to believe that a great vintage could be on its way. Dampness returned to the soil during August (a rare phenomenon!). The return of dry conditions in the weeks before the harvest was heartily welcomed, as they helped to refine the tannins and ripen particularly rich grapes. The magic of '5' vintages seems to have been at work!

This is a beautifully crafted, structured wine. From its ripe black-currant fruits through the acidity and tense tannins, to the full, generous aftertaste, the wine impresses. It has great fruit, balanced acidity and a good potential. Drink from 2025.

Ripe, pure and expressive, with a beautiful panoply of loganberry, plum and red currant preserve flavors that meld seamlessly with anise and singed apple wood details and a subtle chalky spine. A bright floral accent on the finish lifts this up a register and lets it sail on, holding that note. Best from 2020 through 2040. 4,583 cases made.

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pavie Macquin bursts forth from the glass with profound notions of plum preserves, fruit cake, Indian spices and chargrilled meat with touches of black soil, mocha, cedar chest and unsmoked cigars. Full-bodied, voluptuously fruited and decadently styled in the mouth, the packed layers of black fruit preserves and exotic spices are well-matched by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness that sits comfortably in the background, finishing with great length and depth.
