    Nicolas Thienpont is making excellent wines at Pavie Macquin, helped by Stephane Derenoncourt. This is superstylish with a lovely velvet texture. Ripe and juicy but with a no-nonsense structure, this is very sophisticated indeed. It should also offer great value.Highly recommended. Drink 2013-2026

    A noble, complex nose of flowers, beef blood, black currants, licorice, and truffles reveals surprising evolution. The full-bodied, powerful wine exhibits stunning concentration, beautiful richness, sweet tannin, and a long finish. A blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon (all from a bio-dynamically farmed vineyard), the 2004 Pavie-Macquin is another dazzling success from the brilliant winemaking team of Stephane Derenoncourt and Nicolas Thienpont. Drink 2012-2028

    One of the vintage's most impressive offerings, the 2004 Pavie-Macquin is a blend of 75% Merlot,20% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from a bio-dynamically farmed vineyard. It offers an inky/purple color as well as a sumptuous perfume of creosote, blackberries, cassis, incense, and a balsamic character. This full-bodied, rich 2004 is one of the most concentrated wines of the vintage with more texture than most. A brilliant effort, it admirably displays the high quality of this estate as well as its noble terroir. A wine for true connoisseurs, it should be at its peak between 2011-2025+.

    Extremely deep crimson. Strangely animal nose. A rather singed quality – very thick and concentrated with ripe tannins and notably dense colour. I'd like just a bit more acidity but thewine certainly delivers bang for the buck. Just a bit brutal. The maker [Stéphane Derenoncourt] has done his best to compensate for those marked tannins. Lots of work went into this wine. Drink 2010-2020

Château Pavie Macquin

One of the few châteaux in Bordeaux that is biodynamically farmed, Pavie Macquin has long beenone of the top wines of St Emilion which aficionados liken to Lafleur of Pomerol. It is managed bythe ultra dynamic Nicolas Thienpont who uses oenologists Michel Rolland and StéphaneDerononcourt as his right hand men.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
