Château Pavie

Pavie Macquin, took its name from Albert Macquin. The name of Macquin is famous today for more than being attached to a St. Emilion chateau. Albert Macquin was a true pioneer.

In addition, 6 hectares on the lower reaches of the Pavie slopes, on sandy soils, were declassified, a move which would no doubt bolster the quality of the wine but was perhaps also aimed at sweetening the INAO, who approved the reclassificat
