Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 96 points

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.

Wine Spectator: 96 points

Black in color. Aromas of crushed berry, chocolate and licorice follow through to a full body, with a chewy, velvety palate of ripe tannins. Long and very flavorful. A real mouthful. Best after 2015. 4,165 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast: 94 points

This chateau deserved its promotion to Premier Grand Cru in 2006. Nicolas Thienpont has made a wonderfully firm, dense wine that piles rich fruit upon tannin upon rich fruit, while still preserving considerable elegance. The after effect is of a solid wine, powerful, long-lasting.
