The 2019 Pavie Macquin received 95-97 points from Neal Martin, who said that “the palate has a satin-like texture, almost Vosne-Romanée-like, with extraordinarily pure blue and black fruit. Seamless! There is fine tension on the finish with impressive persistence. This is a seriously good Pavie-Macquin from Nicolas Thienpont and his team”.
The Wine Advocate’s Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW concurred with a score of 95-97. She revealed that “yields were 47 hectoliters per hectare this year with about 90% of the production going into the grand vin”.
Antonio Galloni scored the wine a slightly lower range of 93-95 points but commented that “the 2019 is likely to give readers many years of drinking pleasure right out of the gate. The 2019 is pure sensuality in the glass”.
The 2019 Pavie Macquin is coming to the market at a price level comparable to recent years. However, it is the most affordable vintage with this score from Neal Martin. Buyers might wish to look back at the 2016 (NM 95), available at 2.5% discount.
