Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 89

The 1996 Pavie Macquin is super-concentrated, yet possesses a backward, ferociously tannic style. It is an uncompromising wine with a vieilles vignes intensity, as well as an abrasively high tannin level. Some of the terroir’s telltale mineral and blueberry fruit comes through in the nose and flavors, but this medium-bodied, structured, muscular wine will require 8-10 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 23/04/1999]

Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020

Vinous – 90-92

Opaque black-ruby. More brooding aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and smoky oak, plus stony and mineral nuances; slight hint of exotic fruits. Lower-pitched than the ’97, but with penetrating flavor and terrific vivacity. A floral note and a suggestion of chalky terroir contribute to the wine complexity. Finishes with firm but even tannins. Showing considerably more fruit complexity and personality than last year, when I tasted this wine in its several components. Thienpont expected to lightly fine this wine but not to filter it. Should age slowly and gracefully. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/1998]
