Appelation: Saint-Emilion

Winemaker Notes

The third premier grand cru classé wine managed by Nicolas Thienpont, who has a considerable and admirable presence here. The Merlot was picked between September 29th and October 16th, the Cabernet Franc October 7th, 16th and 17th, the Cabernet Sauvignon October 17th. The yield was 40 l/ha. This has a very dark, concentrated nose of crushed black-cherry and black-plum fruit, with fresh perfumed, pencil-drawn edges. The palate is very concentrated, pure, very defined and straight though, the pretty and rather tense fruit character wrapped up in oak here. There is a rather elegant potential underneath it, although no shortage of grip. An impressive barrel sample overall, dark, perfumed, defined, but with lovely freshness and depth as well. This is undoubtedly a great wine, and one of the best vintages of PavieMacquin I recall tasting for some time. What an addition to the cellar this would be. 

About Winery

Pavie Macquin is a property admirably situated on the top of the plateau of Saint Emilion. The realisation of the enormous quality of the property, as well as the will-power to produce a wine worthy of the terroir, began with the arrival of Maryse Barre in 1986. With great energy and determination, Madame Barre contributed hugely to the renaissance of the property. Her work is carried on by Nicolas Thienpont, who arrived at the end of 1994, accompanied by Stéphane Derenoncourt, already present at the chateau since 1990. They found, in Pavie Macquin, the ideal birthplace for a method of production that has since been proven the world over.

This research and this contemplation of a viticulture and vinification based on respect for natural law and a dynamic tradition have made Pavie Macquin a virtual laboratory. It is not a question of creating a new wine but simply of revealing the terroir and unveiling the qualities that were hitherto hidden. In one phrase, it meant revealing the hidden beauty of this ‘Cinderella’.

On the occasion of the reclassification of the Saint Emilion chateaux (in September 2006), Chateau Pavie Macquin was promoted to the prestigious level of Premier Grand Cru Classé

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. (2/2018)

97 points Vinous
 One of the highlights of the vintage, the 2015 Pavie Macquin is positively stellar. A veritable explosion of super-ripe red cherry, rose petal and mocha makes a strong opening statement. Silky on the palate, with soft tannins and tons of sheer exoticism, the 2015 is stunningly beautiful. All of the signatures of the site are turned up to the maximum in this vivid, head-spinning wine from estate manager Nicolas Thienpont and his team. Don't miss it! (AG)  (2/2018)

96 points Wine Spectator
Ripe, pure and expressive, with a beautiful panoply of loganberry, plum and red currant preserve flavors that meld seamlessly with anise and singed apple wood details and a subtle chalky spine. A bright floral accent on the finish lifts this up a register and lets it sail on, holding that note. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM)  (3/2018)
