"By the late 1800’s, Château Pavie and Pavie Decesse were fully separate estates. Close to the same time, the Macquin family was also busy purchasing parcels of vineyards in the same region too. Those purchases led to the creation of Château Pavie Macquin.

"By the late 1800’s, Château Pavie and Pavie Decesse were fully separate estates. Close to the same time, the Macquin family was also busy purchasing parcels of vineyards in the same region too. Those purchases led to the creation of Château Pavie Macquin.

"Jumping ahead to the next century and the start of the First World War, Ferdinand Bouffard sold Château Pavie to Albert Porte who eventually sold the vineyard to the Valette family. The Valette family was were well-known Bordeaux negociants from Paris. If the Valette name sounds familiar, that’s because Christine Valette was the popular owner of Château Troplong Mondot. Château Pavie was classified as Premier Grand Cru Classe “B” while under the Valette families’ management in 1954. That changed in 2012 with the new Classification of St-Émilion when Château Pavie was elevated to Premier Grand Cru Classe A!"

90 The Château Pavie 1985 has a deep, slightly cloudy mahogany hue with tawny rim. The nose is very attractive with lifted ripe, slightly honeyed fruit: mulberry, sloe, kirsch, and smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with good fruit concentration that is paradigmatic of the vintage. Well balanced though perhaps rustic but there is great persistency on the finish. Very fine.
