Quick Overview

RP - 95 POINTS
The second wine of Margaux, the Pavillon Rouge (63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot), exhibits more structure and masculinity than one normally expects. It has a deep ruby/purple color, nice floral and blackcurrant notes, some spice box, moderate tannin and medium body. This is a Pavillon Rouge that should admirably stand the test of time for 15-20 years. Its impressively long finish adds to its appeal and value. This wine will actually benefit from several years of bottle age and keep for 20 years

The proportions of grape varieties show the strengths and weaknesses of the vintage: hardly 10% Merlot, which never recovered from its difficult flowering, and it was never quite understood why; 84% Cabernet Sauvignon which once more demonstrated its remarkable adaptation to our terroirs; 4% Petit Verdot which wasn't expected to be of such good quality; and lastly 2% Cabernet Franc which played its cards right in this complicated vintage.
