Chateau Pavie-Macquin

Admirably situated on the top of the Saint-Emilion plateau next to Pavie, Troplong Mondot and Trottevielle, the vineyards of Château Pavie-Macquin are planted with 70% merlot 25% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon.

This property is owned by Benoit and Bruno Corre, Marie-Jacques Charpentier and their children, all descended from Albert Macquin who was a pioneer of grafting vines onto American rootstocks after the devastating phylloxera epidemic of the late 19th century.

Improvements began in 1986 and have continued under Nicolas Thienpont who became winemaker in 1994, accompanied by Stephane Derenoncourt (already present since 1990).
