Château Pavie-Macquin

The winery is located 1.5 kilometers southeast of the town of Saint-Émilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). Until the end of the 19th century it was owned by Albert Macquin. The first part of the name Pavie is derived from the French name for vineyard peach. Macquin had earned great merits in the grafting of vines in the fight against phylloxera. Today, the estate is owned directly by the Corre-Macquin family. It is managed by Nicolas Thienpont. The vineyards cover more than 15 hectares and are planted with Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). They are cultivated according to the rules of Biodynamic viticulture. The estate, formerly classified as "Grand Cru Classé", was upgraded to "Premier Grand Cru Classé B" in 2006. The long-lasting red wine is aged in two-thirds new barriques. The second wine is called "Les Chênes de Macquin".
