2005 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1431612 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Inky bluish/purple in color, Pavie Macquin produced a prodigious effort from St.-Emilion in 2005. Its crushed, chalky rock minerality, massive body, and high tannin make for a wine to forget for another decade. Super-loaded, concentrated and powerful, this wine should turn out great, but patience will be required. The blackberry and cassis fruit are there in abundance, but so is a massive structure. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. 96+ (RP)  (6/2015)

96 points Wine Spectator

 Bright and fresh, with raspberry, blackberry and black currant fruit still showing vibrancy, while a racy mineral edge and mouthwatering acidity course underneath. Flashes of anise, apple wood and black tea chime throughout. Integrated and melded now, but still quite primary. A wine of precision.—Blind '01/'03/'05 Bordeaux retrospective (December 2017). Drink now through 2035. (JM, Web Only-2018)

95 points Vinous

 (14.8% alcohol; 3.39 pH): Fully saturated deep ruby-red. Brooding aromas of cassis, plum, violet, minerals and aromatic herbs hint at knockout depth and purity. Dense, rich and multi-layered, showing great precision and a seamless texture to the painfully young blackberry, cassis, truffle and mineral flavors. Finishes rich, pure and long, with hints of cocoa and balsamic vinegar. This Pavie Macquin is developing at a snail's pace. The product of a very gentle extraction and a longer cuvaison than usual, this is an absolutely memorable, outstanding wine. 95+ (ID)  (3/2014)
