The 1997 Chateau Pavie Macquin is a terrific wine for the vintage, scoring 91 points (outstanding) in critical reviews.

The color is opaque purple/black, and the nose offers up celestial aromas of black raspberries, cassis, and mineral notes that are reminiscent of wines from the renowned Pomerol estate, Lafleur, or, more recently, the prodigiously perfect 1990 Beausejour-Duffau. The 1997 reveals exceptional old wine intensity, and more structure than many wines of the vintage, but the tannin is sweet and silky. Full-bodied, with layers of extract, an unctuous texture, and a finish that lasts for 40+ seconds, this is a profoundly great wine from a good vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020.

Score: 91/93 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (116), April 1998
