The pure harmony of an exceptional Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé

As a First Great Classified Growth of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Pavie Macquin embodies the excellence and prestige of the emblematic appellation of the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region. An inescapable name among wine lovers, the vintages from Pavie Macquin have distinguished themselves with magnificent wines that have an aromatic purity and an exceptional scope on the palate.

Though a vintage of contrasts, 2017 reveals with panache the elegance of Chateau Pavie Macquin. Ranked as one of the top wines from Saint-Emilion, this challenging vintage is characterized by great freshness. The Pavie Macquin 2017 reveals the strength of the great terroir of Saint-Emilion’s limestone plateau.

The blend consists of Merlot (80%), Cabernet Franc (18%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (2%). The Chateau Pavie Macquin 2017 reveals the character of the exceptional terroir that combines the power of clay with the typical minerality from limestone. Flamboyant and opulent, the charm of the aromatic bouquet opens from the very first moments with black fruit and plum notes, and then gives way to sensual spicy notes and delicate floral fragrances. On the palate, the mouthfeel is harmonious with an intense purity and freshness. The voluptuous concentration dances on the palate and coats it with silky tannins. This powerfully unfolds to give a mineral stretch until the finish that ends with freshness. This is a majestic Pavie Macquin on the grandest of scales.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Pavie Macquin comes charging out of the glass with exuberant scents of warm black cherries, blackberry pie and wild blueberry coulis plus hints of menthol, licorice, candied violets and charcuterie. Medium-bodied, the palate is an exercise in precision and poise, featuring a beautiful frame of wonderfully ripe, very fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and multilayered. Simply stunning! The blend here is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, 70% new.
