  • Goedhuis, April 2015, Score: 91-93

    This fabulous 2nd wine highlights the success of the Chateau in 2014. With 97% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, this is a beautifully vibrant and fresh wine, with a structured central core of fruit. Tense and yet harmonious, with a very long finish. A superb wine.

  • Neal Martin, April 2015, Score: 91-94

    Very silky and refined, with supple plum and cassis notes infused with rooibos tea and bergamot hints. The long, floral-edged finish is very fine-grained, with the floral notes expanding quickly as this airs. Gorgeous in feel, with impressive length. Tasted non-blind.

  • James Suckling, March 2015, Score: 92-93

    This is very structured and strong for the second wine of Pavillon Rouge. Full and very chewy. Yet it’s ripe and intense. Makes you think. Very well done.

  • Decanter, April 2015, Score: 91

    Lovely fragrance and purity of fruit – 'We have gained perfect precision in the last 10 years', said MD Paul Pontallier. It will be expressively elegant as it matures. Drink: 2019-2030

  • Matthew Jukes, May 2015, Score: 17.5

    (77 Cabernet Sauvignon, 22 Merlot, 1 Petit Verdot) This is a precise and fresh Pavillon Rouge with incredible purity and thoroughly profound notes. With lovely length and bright precision, this wine manages to combine delicacy and richness in Margaux’s very own couture style. In years gone by this could very well have masqueraded as the Grand Vin such is the flair here.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2015, Score: 17

    24% of the crop. 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot. Mid crimson. Rather a muddy, indistinct nose. But the palate structure is wonderful. And there is no excess of acidity. Racy, sinewy, fresh but not tart. Paul Pontallier feels this Pavillon Rouge is the best since 2009 and 2010, because of selection. Very graceful indeed. Spreads right across the palate with lovely texture. But fairly early maturing. He admits that Pavillon Rouge 2014 is better than some of his vintages of Ch Margaux. Very appetising and really rather beautiful. 13.5% Drink 2020-2030

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.
