"(13.5% alcohol; 3.68 pH): Bright ruby-red with a pale rim. Strong torrefaction aromas currently overshadow delicate aromatic herbs, licorice, violet and redcurrant jelly on the nose. Bright and fresh on entry, showing lively redcurrant, mineral, licorice and saline flavors and a touch of alcohol at the back. This is atypically high in pH and low in acidity (4.7 grams per liter) for Pavie Macquin, but low compared to many other Bordeaux wines. This smooth, satisfying wine lacks the concentration of the best vintages, but offers earlier than usual accessibility."
