James Halliday "A blend of sousao, graciano, touriga national, tinta cao and tempranillo, a blend to end all blends in this idiom. The clear, bright colour leads into the fragrant berry and spice aromas of the bouquet; the next step is the medium-bodied palate, most impressive is the way the silky tannins have been handled."
James Halliday "Some colour development, but not much; cigar box and spice nuances to the bouquet, then some bottle-developed complexity, moving the black cherry fruit towards the sour cherry; has overall balance; less than 500 dozen made."

The Pavie-Macquin 2007 has a ripe fig-tinged bouquet with macerated dark cherries, sous-bois and a touch of honey. Fine definition. The palate is well defined with an edgy entry, crisp acidity with a peppery finish. Very elegant and refined, this is a lovely Saint Emilion 2007. Drink over 8-12 years.
98 Points - James Suckling - “So much violet and lilac aromas to this with blackberry and blueberry character, too. Full-bodied and delivering limestone, chalk and lavender on the palate. Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften. Better in 2022.
