Recently joined by his son, Cyrille, Nicolas Thienpont has managed the production of this beautiful wine since 1994.
Located on the right bank of Bordeaux, le Chateau Pavie Macquin enjoys a privileged location, on the clay-limestone plateau upon limestone with aseries, characteristic of Saint-Emilion. The superb vineyard of 15 hectares is managed in a traditional way with organic methods and phytotherapy.
A blend of Merlot (78%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (2%), the Chateau Pavie Macquin 2018 is aged for 16 to 20 months in oak barrels (50% new oak and 50% barrels of one previous wine).
An exceptional vintage, the 2018 offers a pure expression of the limestone soil of Saint-Emilion. The Chateau Pavie Macquin 2018 reflects the freshness and the mineral tension of limestone, endowed with a great power. A great vintage of Chateau Pavie Macquin.
