  • Goedhuis, May 2007, Score: 91-93

    Sacrifice was the word of the vintage this year. Nicolas produced 30% less than he did in 2005(and 40% less than 2004). One of the reasons for this was his super selection, eliminating grapes in the vineyard and on the sorting table. He also declassified vats of wine including a normally regular addition equalling 8,000 bottles. That is how strict he was this year. And it shows. His grand vin is rich and spicy with a broad structure and plush tannins that finishes on attractive flavours of cinnamon and plum.

  • Neal Martin, May 2016, Score: 93

    The 2006 Château Pavie Macquin has a ripe, sensual bouquet with copious kirsch and blueberry scents, fine tension and poise, a faint whiff of boot polish in the background. The palate is very elegant on the entry, pure and supple in the mouth, succulent with vivid black cherry and dark plum notes. It is that keen line of acidity cutting through the fruit that takes this Saint Emilion to a higher level and it comes highly recommended. Tasted February 2016.

  • Antonio Galloni, May 2020, Score: 93

    The 2006 Pavie-Macquin is a powerful, burly wine, especially in its feel. Game, smoke, leather, dark spice, chocolate and licorice add to a feeling of virile intensity. Disease pressure at the end of a cool growing season led to a compact harvest in 2006. There is good depth, but less in the way of charm and sensuality. I imagine the 2006 will always retain its somewhat rustic personality. 2022-2036

  • Robert Parker, February 2009, Score: 92+

    From a superbly situated on St.-Emilion's plateau, 38-acre vineyard planted on primarily limestoneand clay, this 2006 is meant for long-term aging. A combination of 80% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is a backward, brawny, muscular, long distance runner. Consumers lacking patience are advised to steer clear of this wine. Its dense purple color is followed by aromas of graphite, sweet cassis, pen ink, and charcoal. This powerful, dense, concentrated wine possesses high tannins and lots of structure. One of the more backward offerings from the right bank in 2006, it will not be close to drinkability for 8-10 years. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.

  • Robert Parker, April 2007, Score: 92-95

    As of this vintage, Pavie Macquin is entitled to a premier grand cru classe designation in the revised classification of the wines of St.-Emilion (suspended in March because of pending litigation). Overseen by the dynamic duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt, the 2006, a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, should turn out to be one of the top wines of the vintage. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of charcoal, blackberries, blueberries, licorice, and smoke. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich, it is nearly as prodigious as the virtually perfect 2005. An amazing wine for the vintage, it clearly emerges from a magnificent terroir. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030.

  • Jancis Robinson, May 2007, Score: 16.5

    Rather a lack of fruit concentration on the mid palate. So cool, green and astringent. Awfully green. Mid crimson. Some ripe fruit with explosive ripe berry sensations, as well as some gaminess. Very distinctive, intense nose. Wild with very exuberant fruit but some leafy green notes too. Organic viticulture.


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.


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.
