This estate was founded by Albert Macquin (1852-1911), who studied viticulture at Paris-Grignon and Montpellier, and became a specialist in grafting and root stocks.
Saint-Émilion can be grateful to him for introducing grafted vines, which saved the vineyards from ruin by phylloxera in the late 19th century.
Owned by the Corre-Macquin family, the vineyard has a prime location atop the plateau overlooking the limestone ledge of the
Côte de Saint-Émilion. Facing westward, opposite the medieval town, Pavie Maquin overlooks the small Fongaban Valley.
The clay-limestone soil on asteriated limestone bedrock provides superb natural drainage and regular water supply. The high concentration of clay makes the wine strong, full-bodied, and generous.
One of Saint-Émilion’s model châteaux, this beautiful estate uses traditional methods in the vineyard and cellar as well as selected modern techniques.
Origin can be beautiful, however, true beauty is in the conclusion of things...
