Tasting Note:

Our tasting of the Nicolas Thienpont wines with his son, Cyril at the beautifully situated Pavie Macquin was a real treat. Larcis Ducasse, Pavie Macquin and Beauséjour Duffau Lagarrosse all possess great terroir; sometimes we find the wines are a bit over the top and lack energy - this certainly wasn't the case in 2015. Produced from 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, Pavie Macquin is less mineral and more clear fruited with notes of high toned cherries, strawberries and cranberries. The palate is packed with seductive raspberry, cherry liqueur fruit and griotte. The pH is low and this acidity gives a zippy, vital, uplifting character to the persistent fruit tannins.
