Château Pavie-Macquin 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 1er Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, aromatic, elegant and offers a beautiful definition as well as intensity. It reveals notes of cassis, Sichuan pepper, violet and small notes of blackberry associated with slight toasted touches and cardamom. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, and offers a beautiful acidulous frame, a good definition, elegance, a good guideline, a racy minerality, tension as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, crunchy cassis and small notes of ripe redcurrants, small wild berries associated with slight touches of fleshy blueberry as well as discreet touches of Zan, tobacco, ripe / dried almond and tonka beans and discreet hints of spices. Tannins are fine, elegant and slightly firm. Small firmness and slight chew on the finish. Good length.
