Chateau Pavie Macquin is a Premier Grand Cru Classe B estate located in Saint Emilion. The Chateau takes its name from the famous Albert Macquin who purchased several chateaux from 1887 and amalgamated their land to create the 26 hectare Chateau Pavie Macquin estate. As an agricultural engineer, Macquin popularized the use of grated vines which would later save the vineyards after they were ravaged by phylloxera. Today, the Chateau is owned by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, the Corre and Charpentier families.

The estate’s vineyards are found on the Cote Pavie and are adjacent to other highly regarded Saint Emilion chateaux including Pavie, Papvie-Decesse and Troplong-Mondot. Two of the estate’s premium plots are on the Ausone Hill and the Pavie Hill, and the estate makes full use of its superb terroir. The soils here are limestone and clay, giving the area significant water retention capabilities that greatly support the vines. The clay soils that heat up slowly results in a later ripening for the grapes and adds a tremendous amount of terroir to the wine. The fleshy wines boast minerality and freshness, with the blend of Merlot, some Cabernet Franc, and a final top-off of old vine Cabernet Sauvignon creating a characterful and complex wine.

There is little doubt of the estate’s great potential which has been on the rise since 1998. During this period of improvement Chateau Pavie Macquin have boasted Stephane Derenoncourt and Nicolas Thienpont in the winemaking team. Thienpont introduced organic and then biodynamic winemaking at the estate which have contributed to developing the property’s style; a wine of great power and tension.
