‘The 2008 Pavie-Macquin is fabulous. An exceptionally beautiful wine, the 2008 is positively stellar. In the glass, the 2008 is aromatically deep, silky and vibrant. The year was marked by an extremely long growing season with an early start and a late harvest that kept getting pushed back because of unusually cool nights. The Cabernets came in only at the end of October. 2020-2030’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 96/100

‘Consultants Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt have produced a beautiful St.-Emilion that tastes like the quintessence of crushed rocks intermixed with blueberry, blackberry, black raspberry, licorice, camphor and truffle notes. This full-bodied effort should drink well in 4-5 years, and last for two decades or more. It achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. 2015-2035’ – Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate, 94+/100

‘An impressive wine, beautifully structured, never too powerful, very elegant. If it feels a little austere at this stage, that is because the structure is dominating the fruit. Give it 5–6 years and the full splendor will be revealed.’ – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 94/100

‘Bright healthy crimson. Rich, juicy, succulent fruit. Really appetising. Lots of ripe fruit plus lots of acid and ripe tannin. Truly a youthful, but promising, package. Well done! Maybe just a tad too tart? Or maybe this will keep it going splendidly for the long life it deserves. 2017-2030’ – Jancis Robinson,, 17/20

‘Sliced plums and almost peaches on the nose. Love it. Mineral and truffles too. Full bodied, and powerful with a long, long finish. Sneaks up on you.’ – James Suckling,, 92/100

Producer information Château Pavie Macquin gets its name from Albert Macquin, a famous Saint-Emilion pioneer. His purchase of La Serre, Peygenestou, Pavie-Chapus, Pavie-Pigasse and other properties, totaled 26 hectares and made up Château Pavie-Macquin. The property is located on a plateau, next to Mondot hill and on the edge of the Fongaban fault. Albert was an agricultural engineer who popularised grafted plants. It was this method of grafting that solved the vineyards from the phylloxera epidemic, and he deserves much credit for saving not only the vineyards of St. Emilion but of the larger Bordeaux as well. The château is still in his family today, run by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
