Château Pavie Macquin 1999

This vineyard's founder was Albert Macquin (1852-1911), to whom Saint-Emilion owes the use of grafted vines, which were to save the vineyards from permanent devastation by phylloxera. Pavie-Macquin is a family-owned vineyard of 15 hectares (37 acres). Ideally situated on Saint-Emilion's highest plateau. With its limestone-claysoils over asteriated limestone, it benefits from natural drainage and an exceptionally steady supply of moisture. Its clay content plays a part in making this wine powerful, fleshy, ample and mouth-filling. " The source may be beautiful, but true beauty lies in the accomplishment "

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The dense plum/purple-colored 1999 offers up aromas of truffles, underbrush, espresso, black cherries, and roasted meats. The wine is powerful and muscular with high extract and mouth-searing tannin, it is an atypically backward effort for the vintage. Patient connoisseurs who admire wines with this level of intensity will be handsomely repaid for their discipline. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.
