Tasting Note:

Nicolas Thienpont's wines were not participating in the St Emilion UGC anymore, so we had to make an impromptu trip up the winding drive to Chateau Pavie Macquin. Tasting after Beausejour Duffau Lagarrosse is always going to be a challenge… Pavie Macquin is distinctly red fruited compared to B-D-L (what isn't?)Lots of raspberry pips, salted redcurrants, grenadine, hints of herbs and slaty minerality. It is certainly much fresher and brighter than Beausejour. 82% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.
