The 2017 Pavie Macquin is deep garnet-purple in color and opens with flamboyant notes of warm black and red plums, black cherries and tilled soil with delicate touches of cloves, star anise, red roses and forest floor. Medium-bodied with a firm backbone of very finely grained, very ripe tannins and tons of freshness, it has wonderfully elegant yet intense fruit layers and a long, minerally finish. Just beautiful.

Big in tannins as well as fruit, this wine is very fine. It has weight, concentrated black fruits and juicy acidity. The fruit is approachable, giving fruitiness and a soft aftertaste. Drink this fine wine from 2024.

A sexy, racy wine, the 2017 Pavie Macquin is full of personality. A rush of sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and blood orange infuses this sumptuous, racy Saint-Émilion. A wine of striking purity and total class, Pavie Macquin dazzles. As always, Pavie Macquin is marked by stunning fruit purity, red fruit, soft contours and silky, voluptuous tannins. In 2017, the blend has a bit more Cabernet Franc than in the past, now that younger vineyards have come online.

Very solid center palate of fruit and firm, silky tannins. Linear and bright with a focused and pretty finish. Full-bodied, tight and precise. Very clear and bright.

From a cooler, north-facing terroir located on the upper plateau of Saint Emilion, the 2017 Château Pavie Macquin sports a deep purple/blue color as well as perfumed, exotic notes of black cherries, blueberries, crushed rocks, violets, and ample floral nuances. With bright acidity, ripe, yet firm tannin, it shows the cooler, focused, austere side to the vintage, yet is pure, concentrated, and impeccably balanced. This is a 2017 built for the long haul and is going to need at least 4-5 years of bottle age. The blend is 80% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested between the 20th of September and the 9th of October.

Deliciously engaging, with a pure, aromatic display of boysenberry and blackberry fruit running through, picking up light bramble and anise accents along the way. Fresh and nicely defined, showing plenty of crackle on the finish.
