Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, May 2007,
    Score: 90-92

    A stringent selection led to Pavillon Rouge containing 55% of the crop. Yet despite its second winestatus, it is an excellent drink in its own right. Brimming with youthful exuberance, its palate isenveloped in fine round tannins and an ample palate of blueberry, treacle, milk chocolate andminerals. Produced from 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% CabernetFranc.

    The light, fresh, sensual, round 2006 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux exhibits moderate levels of dark cherry and red currant fruit accompanied by background herb and spice characteristics. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. Drink: 2009 - 2016

    Score: 16.5

    40% M, 5% PV and CF and the rest CS. This second wine represents 55% of the crop. All the great Cabernet went into the grand vin, we were told. Mid to light crimson. Highly aromatic. Very lifted and fragrant. Ralatively light and even a bit skinny. Nervy and a little bit green even. Only medium weight. Light dry sandy tannins. Pretty fast fade on the finish. Seems to me a relatively weak Pavillon Rouge.

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.
