2020 Château Pavie Macquin En Primeur

We loved the 2020 Château Pavie Macquin when we tasted it.  With the same heady, warm plum fruits and earth notes we encountered in other top right bank wines this year, there was also a superb limestone character and nimbleness and freshness on the palate.  Galloni and Perotti-Brown both loved it too, scoring it at 96-98 points, which makes the release price of £345 per six bottles seem very reasonable.

Producer Profile

Château Pavie Macquin, St Emilion

Château Pavie Macquin is a Premier Grand Cru Classe (B) estate in St.-Emilion.  It is named after the grandfather of the current owners, Albert Macquin (1852-1911), who Saint-Emilion has to thank for the use of grafted plants designed to save the vineyards devastated by phylloxera.   Rated Grand Cru Classé, the estate has 15 hectares of vines on a limestone-clay plateau over asteriated limestone.  The wine is a blend of 78% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.  It spends 16-20 months in 50% new oak barrels.  Around 5,500 cases are made each year.

In 1994, Nicolas Thienpont was named the manager. For several years, his son Cyrille has been playing an active role.
