Pavie Macquin Premier 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: “The 2012 Pavie Macquin is pure elegance. Silky tannins and a supple, layered personality give the 2012 much of its inviting personality. With time in the glass, the 2012 turns a bit darker and more masculine. Dark cherry, pomegranate, smoke and sweet floral notes are some of the signatures. The Grand Vin is a big step up from the second wine. The blend is 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Stéphane Derenoncourt is the consulting oenologist.” 1/16 94 Points, James Suckling: "There is a purity and directness to this wine with blueberry, sliced-mushroom and floral character. Full body, firm tannins and a long and intense finish. Racy." 02/15

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
