What are the specificities of Château Pavie Macquin ?
Château Pavie Macquin, took its name from Albert Macquin. Albert Macquin was a true pioneer, it is largely thanks to him that the phylloxera epidemic was resolved. Indeed, he had the idea of grafting the suffering vines on rootstocks. This saved not only Saint-Emilion, but also a large part of Bordeaux and the vineyards of Europe from the devastation caused by the relentless attack of phylloxera. The current owners of Pavie Macquin are Benoit Corre, Bruno Corre and Marie-Jacques Charpentier.
This vineyard, admirably situated on the Pavie hillside, has long been a sleeping beauty. Until the heirs of the property called on a trio of shock composed of Nicolas Thienpont (from the family that owns Vieux Château Certan), Stéphane Derenoncourt (a self-taught winemaker) and Michel Rolland (one of the greatest oenologists in the world). The wines have been given a youthful touch while respecting the terroir without sacrificing to the fashion for wines to be consumed young.
A clear improvement can be observed between the wines before 1998 and those that followed, 1998 being the vintage of Pavia's rebirth in terms of its wines. The wines illustrate how far Pavia has come. To date, 2005 Pavie Macquin remains the finest vintage they have produced to date.
This 15 hectare Saint-Emilion vineyard of Pavie Macquin is planted with 3 grape varieties:
- Merlot 80%
- Cabernet Franc 18
- Cabernet Sauvignon 2%.
The vineyard of Château Pavie Macquin is located next to the Mondot hill at an altitude between 75 and 100 meters at its highest point. Pavie Macquin enjoys a breathtaking view of its neighbors Troplong Mondot is to the west, Pavie is to the south, Trotte vielle is due north and Pavie Decesse is just ahead.
The estate has a complex terroir that is characterized by 9 different soil types, most of which are clay-limestone. To simplify things, their northern plots are a bit cooler, while the southern plots are warmer. The vineyard benefits from old vines: many are on average nearly 40 years old. Their oldest vines are over 60 years old.
On tasting, one finds a wine that is fresh and aromatic on the nose with a very dense, fruity, slender mid-palate with lots of flavor as well as a tight and sometimes firm frame on the finish, nicely relayed by the aroma. A Pavie Macquin used to wait and it will always wait.
