Chateau Pavie Macquin 2014 - Case of 6 Bottles (75cl)
The 2014 Pavie-Macquin has a concentrated bouquet with layers of blackberry and raspberry coulis, infused with potpourri and incense. There is something almost forbidding about the aromatics at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe red berry fruit, a fine line of acidity, although it feels a little soft on the finish when I needed more precision and backbone. Let's see how this ages in bottle, because I suspect that it will gain more density and structure with 2-3 years of bottle age.
