Tasting Notes

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Advocate 96-98/100
The 2020 Pavie Macquin has an opaque purple-black color, exploding from the glass with an intoxicating perfume of violets, Ceylon tea, forest floor and eucalyptus over a core of blackberry preserves, Morello cherries and stewed plum, plus wafts of crushed rocks and unsmoked cigars. The medium to full-bodied palate shimmers with energetic red and black fruit layers and loads of floral and earthy sparks, framed by exquisitely ripe, finely grained tannins and amazing tension, finishing with a long-lingering perfume of black fruits. A real head-turner! Drink: 2025 - 2055

Neal Martin, vinous.com 91-93/100
The 2020 Pavie-Macquin has a boisterous, attention-grabbing bouquet of opulent blueberry and kirsch scents, a touch of orange pith developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, certainly one of the most exotic wines from the estate in recent years, and a luscious finish, where I would like to feel more of the Cabernet Franc. This needs a very prudent élevage. Drink: 2025-2045

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com 95-98/100
The 2020 Pavie Macquin is one of the most exotic Saint-?milions of the year. Inky red fruit, lavender, rose petal, mint, plum and kirsch all open in the glass. Succulent and racy to the core, the 2020 possesses mind-blowing intensity yet remains fresh, vibrant and full of energy. It is one of the most alluring and complete recent vintages I can remember tasting. In a word: dazzling. Drink: 2030 - 2055

Vineyard Information

This vineyard's founder was Albert Macquin (1852-1911), to whom Saint-Emilion owes the use of grafted vines, which were to save the vineyards from permanent devastation by phylloxera. Pavie-Macquin is a family-owned vineyard of 15 hectares (37 acres). Ideally situated on Saint-Emilion's highest plateau. With its limestone-claysoils over asteriated
limestone, it benefits from natural drainage and an exceptionally steady supply of moisture. Its clay content plays a part in making this wine powerful, fleshy, ample and mouth-filling.
