    Vinous: "The 2016 Pavie Macquin is a total stunner. Rich, lush and inviting,  the 2016 is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, lavender and mint are all given an extra kick of allure by silky tannins that caress the palate from start to finish. There is a level of precision and nuance here that is simply breathtaking. The purity of the fruit is just mind-boggling."   Jan 2019

    Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Pavie Macquin charges out of the glass with gregarious black cherries, warm blackberries and wild blueberries scents followed up by loads of red roses, baking spices, cedar chest and unsmoked cigars sparks plus a waft of wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is an exercise in poise, revealing layer upon layer of cherries and berries flavors and tons of savory nuances, framed by firm yet exquisitely ripe tannins, finishing very long."  Nov 2018

    Winery:  "Gravity vatting of whole berries and separate vinification in concrete tanks.  Reductant aging on fine lees: first racking after 6 to 10 months of aging (before summer), the second one a year later, before the bottling.  Fining and filtering only if necessary.  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!"
