Château Pavie-Macquin St.-Emilion 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This was our wine of the morning in St Emilion. With an extraordinary<br/>lavender-sage topnote to the nose and seriously ripe, concentrated plum and<br/>damson fruit on the palate, this was on a different level to anything we had<br/>tasted thus far. The tannins were so ripe they simply disappeared and the juicy<br/>fruit was counterbalanced by a freshness that we had not found in the majority<br/>of Merlot-based wines. The 2009 Pavie Macquin contains 85% Merlot but the 14%<br/>Cabernet Franc (and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon) is they key here, adding minerality,<br/>poise and phenomenal length.

Terroirs are the expression of a place, a witness to history. Infinitely rich and varied, their complexity is expressed through their biological, geological, topographical and climatic characteristics. Precious and fragile, they are the greatest thing that nature offers us and they cannot be imitated. Their quality is an irreplaceable ingredient in the production of great wines. To produce gr...

Terroirs are the expression of a place, a witness to history. Infinitely rich and varied, their complexity is expressed through their biological, geological, topographical and climatic characteristics. Precious and fragile, they are the greatest thing that nature offers us and they cannot be imitated. Their quality is an irreplaceable ingredient in the production of great wines. To produce great wines in the image of a terroir: the idea is simple but the practice requires patience and humility. Pavie Macquin, this eponymous chateau, finds the key to its history in one man, Albert Macquin (1852-1911). It is to him that Saint Emilion owes the idea of grafting vines onto rootstocks, thereby saving the region from ruin by phylloxera. Henri Enjalbert wrote, “During more than thirty years, Albert Macquin was the master of the transformation of the vineyards of Saint Emilion”. The current owners of the chateau are his grandchildren: Benoit and Bruno Corre, Marie-Jacques Charpentier and their children. They have shown, like their ancestor, a great attachment to this admirable terroir. Read less

Tasting Notes:

A rich, dry, merlot-based rosé with tart raspberry jam and a spicy nose.
