The power and freshness of a mineral Grand Cru de Saint-Émilion
A beautiful reference of its appellation, the prestigious Premier Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion – Château Pavie Macquin- has produced an exceptional 2018 vintage.
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 Château 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 Château 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-Émilion. The Château Pavie Macquin 2018 reflects the freshness and the mineral tension of limestone, endowed with a great power. A great vintage of Château Pavie Macquin.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Pavie Macquin is deep garnet-purple colored and a little closed to begin, slowly revealing subtle notions of dark chocolate, candied violets and rose hip tea over a core of plum preserves, blueberry compote and cherry coulis plus wafts of woodsmoke and crushed stones. Full-bodied, the palate has a seriously impressive structure of ripe, firm, velvety tannins and bold freshness carrying off all that rich black fruit, finishing very long and mineral laced.
