La Roseede Pavie 1986

Member Review by Rodolphe Boulanger:

A rich, round and opulent St Emilion that needed almost an hour to open up... but boy did it open up! I don't think it is at its peak yet - cellar until 2012 to 2015.

Château Pavie-Macquin:
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.

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

The bottle I had had some decay in the cork, but no damage to the wine. It was a bit thin at first, but refreshingly tart (went well with grilled flank steak), and it opened to a landscape-scale expanse after about 40 minutes of decanting. It may not be possible to purchase this wine any more, but if you can get your hands on a glass, it's worth it.
