Chateau Pavie Macquin Saint Emilion 2015
: "Gravity vatting of whole berries and separate vinification in concrete tanks. Reductant aging on fine lees: first racking after 6 to 10 months of aging (before summer), the second one a year later, before the bottling. Fining and filtering only if necessary. Dampness returned to the soil during August (a rare phenomenon!). The return of dry conditions in the weeks before the harvest was heartily welcomed, as they helped to refine the tannins and ripen particularly rich grapes. The magic of ‘5’ vintages seems to have been at work!"
