Tasting notes:
'This has lovely energy, with the vintage's up-front briary feel pulling the flavors of plum sauce, blackberry coulis and cherry preserves along while anise, apple wood and fruitcake notes fill in behind them. Offers a solid, juicy feel through the finish, revealing floral and incense hints in reserve. Rock-solid. Best from 2018 through 2028.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100

'An elegant wine, it manages to embrace its rich fruit and still show style. There is an opulent texture, driven by ripe Merlot, yet the wine is also fresh and crisp, full of black currant fruit.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 93/100

'This well-known St.-Emilion estate has turned out a dense purple-colored blend of 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Super-concentrated, but not over-extracted, with an essence of blackberry, blueberry and black raspberry fruit interwoven with dusty, chalky minerality as well as a floral note, this full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic, pure, layered, impressive 2011 will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It can be enjoyed over the following two decades.' – Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 92+/100

About Château Pavie Macquin:
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.
