Product Description

“From a cool terroir on clay and limestone soils (the perfect scenario for producing great wine in 2003), the 2003 Pavie Macquin is composed of 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, and achieved 13.8% natural alcohol. Full-bodied, young and vigorous, the wine exhibits a dense blue/black color to the rim along with a stunning nose of asphalt, truffle, blackberry, cassis, lead pencil shavings and forest floor. The super-complex aromatics are followed by an opulent, majestic 2003 with a finish that lasts nearly 45 seconds. One of the superstars of the vintage, it should continue to drink well for 10-15+ years. Bravo!” Robert Parker 94 Points

“Dark ruby-red. Sexy aromas of ripe blackberry, blueberry pie, woodsmoke, vanilla and flinty minerals. Then big, rich and suave in the mouth, with concentrated flavors of ripe dark and red cherry, blackcurrant, truffle and cocoa. The long finish features a licorice quality and smooth tannins. The cool limestone soils of Pavie Macquin really came through in the furnace-like conditions of 2003: although this is undoubtedly a very opulent, mouthfilling wine, it is also amazingly refined and suave for the year--anything but over the top.” Vinous 93 Points

“Features a bold plum and cherry confiture aroma that shows the warmth of the vintage, but maintains finesse, with a silky feel and long incense and warm fruitcake notes. The vintage wins out here, revealing a lightly firm plum skin edge on the finish rather than the typical fine chalky hint. Will have fans for its enticing fruit.” Wine Spectator 91 Points
