Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2018, Score: 92-94

As ever only an edge off the pace of the Grand Vin. Unlike most Bordeaux estates who produce a second wine, Ch Margaux also indulges in a third and a fourth. This means the second, Pavillon Rouge, is proportionally improved by this stricter selection. And selection was extreme this year, Thibault Pontallier explained. They will produce half the volume of Pavillon Rouge in 2017 compared to 2016. This is an enchanting wine; crunchy and vibrant, with aromatic poise and supple tannins. The open, red fruit palate is already approachable and should make an immensely enjoyable early-drinking style.

Producer

Château Margaux

Known as the most elegant and aromatic First Growth due to its Cabernet-friendly, sandy soil, Château Margaux is owned by Corinne Mentzelopoulos and managed by the dynamic Paul Pontallier. Château Margaux's vineyard holdings amount to almost 200 acres, though a much smaller percentage is selected for the grand vin to ensure exceptional concentration.

Region

Margaux, Red Bordeaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
