  • Neal Martin, June 2017, Score: 90

    Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Pavie-Macquin has quite a rich and opulent bouquet that is clearly trying to surpass the limitation of the vintage. There is pleasant purity, and certainly, it is less herbaceous than many of its peers, with peppermint-tinged red cherry and cranberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a mixture of red and black fruit, quite caressing in texture, with a well balanced if not overly complex finish. While it does not possess the length of a great vintage, it is a pleasing Saint Emilion that is perfect to consume now. Tasted February 2017. 90/100. Drink 2017-2027

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2008, Score: 16.5

    Exceptionally deep crimson. Minerals charcoal? on the nose. Very, unusually, sweet and rich and round and seductive. A great sweet spread of gentle fruit on the front palate. Not aggressive at all. Quite a feat in 2007! Lively. Real vitality here. Again it finishes a bit suddenly but there is lots of pleasure to be had here. Big and bloody and flattering on the front palate, then it tightens up quite considerably and shows a little bit of astringency and quite marked acidity. More vivacity than many even though in the context of all vintages it's a little bit dull. Drink2012-16.

Producer

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.
