Chateau Pavie Macquin 2018 (6 bottles)
Appellation: Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux
IN. Excellent appearance.
This lot comes from a private collector who bought through en-primeur. The wines have been in commercial storage since arrival.
"One of my favorite wines, the 2018 Château Pavie Macquin is 78% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon that comes from a cooler terroir above Pavie. This Cuvée is always hard to judge in its youth, since it’s often closed and reserved, but it builds beautifully with bottle age and offers an incredibly classic, complex, powerful, and elegant profile at maturity. Brought up in 70% new French oak, the 2018 reveals a dense purple hue as well as classic Saint-Emilion notes of cassis, black cherries, white truffle, chalky minerality, violets, and tobacco. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it has polished tannin’s, a wonderfully pure, elegant texture, and the balance and class to benefit from a decade of bottle age and keep for three decades or more." – Jeb Dunnuck, 97+ pts
