About Chateau Pavie Macquin 2015 St. Emilion, Premier Grand Cru Classe

In 1994, Nicolas Thienpont assumed the role of Director of Chateau Pavie Macquin upon request of the Corre-Macquin family.  His arrival did not go unnoticed: The wines gained in quality and Pavie Macquin was promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classé status in 2006 and once again in 2012.

The 36 acre vineyard of Pavie Macquin is planted to 80% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards of Chateau Pavie Macquin are located next to the hill of Mondot. The soils are clay and limestone and the vines average almost 40 years of age.

This wine from the outstanding 2015 vintage received accolades across the board. James Suckling scored this 98 points saying "So much violet and lilac aromas to this with blackberry and blueberry character, too. Full-bodied and delivering limestone, chalk and lavender on the palate. Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften. Better in 2022."

Wine Enthusiast Magazine awarded this a "Cellar Selection" and scored it 97 points saying "This is a beautifully crafted, structured wine. From its ripe black-currant fruits through the acidity and tense tannins, to the full, generous aftertaste, the wine impresses. It has great fruit, balanced acidity and a good potential. Drink from 2025."

Wine Spectator scored this 96 points saying "Ripe, pure and expressive, with a beautiful panoply of loganberry, plum and red currant preserve flavors that meld seamlessly with anise and singed apple wood details and a subtle chalky spine. A bright floral accent on the finish lifts this up a register and lets it sail on, holding that note. Best from 2020 through 2040."
