Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 97 points

Pale to medium garnet-brick in color, the 1998 Pavie Macquin simply sings with incredibly pure, spritely notes of blueberry preserves, blackberry pie and black cherry compote, revealing loads of eucalyptus, mocha, dried lavender and Chinese five spice accents. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is has wonderfully seductive blue and black fruit layers, framed by velvety tannins and the perfect amount of freshness to create tantalizing tension, finishing with incredible length and depth. Effortlessly delicious and yet possessing plenty of subtext for intellectual stimulation, I just love where this compelling '98 is at right now!

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 92 points

Saturated medium ruby. Blackberry, cocoa powder, melted toffee and smoky oak on the nose. Very concentrated and delineated, with a sappy sweetness and chewy density. Dark fruit and dark chocolate flavors are framed and carried by juicy acids. Finishes with firm, even tannins that avoid dryness. Extremely young wine, but showing spectacularly well already.
