    The 2000 Pavillon Rouge, exhibits a medium/dark ruby color with some lightening at the edge, notes of cedar, spice box, black cherries, and currants in very evolved style at full maturity. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

    One of the finest examples I have tasted, the 2000 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux exhibits supple tannin along with big, sweet, luscious black currant flavors intermixed with hints of cedar, spice box, and vanilla. Plump and fleshy, with low acidity, it will offer delicious drinking now and over the next 10-15 years. Don't miss it. Drink 2003-2018

    This excellent second wine, the 2000 Pavillon Rouge de Margaux is a fat, dense purple-colored offering with more obvious intensity and muscle. It will evolve nicely for 15 years. Drink 2002-2017

    Another stunning success from Paul Pontallier's team, absorbing 50% of the crop. (40% went into the Grand Vin and some merchant somewhere will be selling the remaining 10% as unidentified AC Margaux.) Very gentle and elegant and, as usual, one of the more forward "serious" wines of the Médoc. Silky, subtle nose. Round and apparently lowkey on the palate at first but then it comes back, filling the mouth, with a kick of appetising tannins. An admirable whole, stylistically quite different from the Grand Vin but made of similarly delicate fruit.

    This is 1999-ish in its very lovely expression of fresh, ripe fruit. Rich. Very fine acidity. Good structure but the backbone is very well hidden. Enormous charm and sex-appeal. Very long. Very classy. Delicious. Very good indeed. From 2007.

Producer

Château Margaux

Known as the most elegant and aromatic First Growth due to its Cabernet-friendly, sandy soil, Château Margaux is owned by the Mentzelopoulos family. The estate'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

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.
