The subtlety of a Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe

The estate
Chateau Pavie Macquin was founded in the 19th century by Albert Macquin, the man who introduced grafted vines to France in order to save the country's vineyards from the destruction caused by phylloxera. Today, the estate still belongs to the descendants of Albert Macquin. This Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion is an essential reference of the appellation and is one of the greatest wines in the world.

The vineyard
Chateau Pavie Macquin extends over 15 hectares in clay-limestone soils on the plateau of limestone rocks in Saint-Emilion on the right bank of Bordeaux.

The vintage
The 2019 vintage was characterized by contrasting climatic conditions. The heat of the summer was tempered by a few rainy days, delivering very ripe Merlot and fresh Cabernet, whose blend offers a beautiful aromatic complexity.

The winemaking
Manual harvest. Gravity vatting of the fruit and plot-by-plot vinification in oak and concrete tanks.

The aging
Aging from 16 to 20 months. Reductive aging on fine lees. 1st racking after 6 to 10 months of aging, the second a year later, before bottling. Fining and filtration only if necessary.

The blend
Merlot (78%), cabernet franc (20%), cabernet sauvignon (2%).

The tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Pavie Macquin 2019 promises to be a very great vintage for the property. Thanks to the thermal amplitudes at the end of the season, the vintage has retained an exceptional freshness, showcasing bright and expressive fruit.
