Highly Recommended

Château Pavie-Macquin, 1er GCC
2009
Rich; earth, chocolate, Port, liquorice, tar and black fruit on the nose. Fleshy and voluptuous with big, ripe tannins in support. Sumptuous and highly fruited, it is an extreme style exploring the limits of maturity. The definition of hedonism? 17.5 (91)
