Château Pavie Macquin 2011 St-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé


This prestigious Château of Saint-Emilion has managed the impossible in 2006: Being promoted from "Cru Classé" to "Premier Cru Classé". Pavie Macquin traditionally develops concentrated, intense and powerful wines. 2011 is no exception and represents a great achievement for the vintage, showing amazingly complex flavours of black cherry, raspberry, ceddar wood, sweet spices and more. Finish is unbelievably long and supple: this is a highly impressive wine that will age beautifully for a long time. Do not hesitate to decant it for a while if you taste it in a near future.

What experts say  
  
 
92+/100 "This well-known Saint-Emilion estate has turned out a dense purple-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 for 4-5 years cellaring. It can be enjoyed over the following 2 decades."
 
  
  

93/100 "This has lovely energy, with the vintage's up-front briary feel pulling the flavors of plum sauce, blackberry coulis and cherry preserves along with anise, apple wood and fruitcake notes fill behind them. Offers a solid, juicy feel through the finish, revealing floral and incense hints in the reserve. Rock-solid."
