ABV 14.5%

This very refined Saint Emilion is the second wine from the mighty Château Pavie Macquin. With just enough 'pillowy' luxuriance - this delivers neatly refined claret. Not hiding its right-bank weight - this does, however, offer a purity of fruit and energetic joy with great restraint. We tasted in a long line up of other Bordeaux wines and this really shone. Giving us just what we would hope for from here. Great, heart-restoring, reaffirming claret. Polished and sophisticated, but far from dull. L&S (Sep 2021)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Château Pavie Macquin

Château Pavie Macquin owes its name to the grand-father of the current owners Albert Macquin (1852-1911), who used plant grafting as a way to save the Saint-Emilion vineyard, destroyed by phylloxera. Since 1994, Nicolas Thienpont has been managing this family property of 15 hectares which was promoted « Premier Grand Cru Classé » in September 2006. The vineyard of Pavie Macquin is situated on the summit of the Saint-Emilion plateau. Thanks to its commanding position, its height ranges from 100 meters above sea level next to the hill, to 75 meters on the edge of the plateau. The soils are all limestone-clay and express different aspects of the terroir through the vine, depending on the strength of the clay, and above all on their proximity to the asteriated limestone layer at a depth of between 20cm and 150cm. Pavie Macquin is the combination of power and minerality.
