Chateau Pavie-Macquin – St Emilion 1st Grand Cru 2017
From a cooler, north-facing terroir located on the upper plateau of Saint Emilion, the 2017 Chateau Pavie Macquin sports a deep purple/blue color as well as perfumed, exotic notes of black cherries, blueberries, crushed rocks, violets, and ample floral nuances. With bright acidity, ripe, yet firm tannin, it shows the cooler, focused, austere side to the vintage, yet is pure, concentrated, and impeccably balanced. This is a 2017 built for the long haul and is going to need at least 4-5 years of bottle age.

Chateau Pavie Macquin, a St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe (B), is a property that has hit form in the last 10 years and is now producing first-class wines. It is located east of the village of St Emilion and its 15 hectares of vineyards are located on the Cote Pavie, adjacent to the vineyards of Pavie, Pavie-Decesse and Troplong-Mondot. Since 1990 Nicholas Thienpoint Chateau has been in charge of the property. A pioneer of the Right Bank, Nicolas Thienpoint first pushed the boundaries with organic then biodynamic winemaking in developing the property’s style, helped by his soon-to-be-famous maitre de chai, Stephane Derenoncourt, who joined the team in 1990 and still consults today. Pavie Macquin’s wine is a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
