Tasting Notes

"I have been extolling the virtues of these wines since the late eighties. Extremely old vines, organic farming, and some of the lowest yields in Bordeaux produce densely-colored, highly-extracted, exceptionally pure and elegant wines that possess a Burgundian-like texture and complexity. The 1989 continues to be one of that vintages "sleepers." The color remains a youthful ruby/purple. The bouquet offers copious quantities of black-raspberry and cassis fruit nicely touched by stony/mineral and floral scents. The spicy, vanillin component is subtle. This full-bodied, highly-extracted, elegant wine should reach full maturity in 2-3 years; it will last through the first 15 years of the next century." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (2/27/1997, Issue 109), Ratings: 90

"The 1989 Pavie-Macquin is one of the sleepers of the vintage. The opaque deep ruby/purple color suggests old vines and sensational extract. The implications drawn from the wine's color are fulfilled in the mouth. Fabulously concentrated, with wonderful purity of raspberry flavor, and fine balance, this massive, highly extracted, medium-bodied wine should last for up to 20 years. It is a real beauty." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (2/27/1993, Issue 85), Ratings: 90

"Which St.-Emilion tastes like a grand cru red burgundy - let's say Musigny? The 1989 Pavie-Macquin, which is one of the great sleepers of the vintage. The opaque deep ruby/purple color suggests very old vines and sensational extract. The implications drawn from the wine's color are fulfilled in the mouth. Fabulously concentrated, with wonderful purity of raspberry flavor, and great balance, this massive, highly extracted, medium to full-bodied wine should last for up to 20 years. It is a real beauty. This property is largely unknown, so move quickly before the price soars." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (4/22/1992, Issue 80), Ratings: 90
