    The 2022 Pavillon Rouge, which represents 32% of the production this year, has a highly perfumed nose with wilted violets chaperoning the copious black fruit. Wonderful definition. The palate is medium-bodied with fine boned tannins. Silky smooth and sensual, with a mineral-driven finish, this sashays along in style. One of the few 2022's whose barrel sample is so seductive I could have eloped with it there and then. 14.8% alcohol. Drink 2026-2048

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 Pavillon Rouge is deep and perfumed, wafting from the glass with notions of cherries, raspberry preserve, lilac, violets and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated palate that's deep, rich and vibrant, with a tannic grain that resembles the grand vin this year. It represents just under a third of the estate's production.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 Pavillon Rouge is a rich, sumptuous wine. A burst of red/purplish fruit, rose petal, lavender and blood orange makes a strong opening, followed by unexpectedly bright, saline notes that bring it all together on the mid-palate and finish. The Pavillon Rouge is an eye-opening wine that embodies the style of the year so eloquently. I especially admire the vibrancy here. The purity of the flavors and quality of the tannins really elevate the 2022. Drink 2028-2042.

    Philippe Bascaules, Managing Director of Ch Margaux, decided to put just under a third of the Château’s production into Pavillon this year, and you can really feel the quality of the material here. There’s a spiced rusticity from the Petit Verdot, but with that lovely quintessential Margaux perfume of violets, lilac and crushed rose petals behind. A mouthful of pure ripe black cherry, blueberry and violets greets you, with a supremely generous and silk like texture. All this is carried by juicy, lifted acidity, with those signature fine powdery tannins tucked underneath. This is an exemplary Pavillon.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    Rich and dense with lots of fruit and juiciness. Redcurrants, black berries, strawberries and orange peel on the nose. Full and layered with fine, velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Big presence.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 94

    Glass-staining inky purple, fleshy damson and cassis fruits with spice and concentration. Captures the spirit of the vintage with plush damson fruits, edges of sweet spices and gunsmoke, but keeps the understated pleasure that Margaux specialises in, with soft peony aromatics. High Petit Verdot in this blend because using the 2% that normally goes into the first wine but is kept out in 2022. No pumping over, with director Philippe Bascaules making the choice to let extraction happen gently, with minimal intervention. 32% of the crop in Pavillon, 25hl/h yield. 60% new oak (although this sample is 100%), and clear need to be cautious with oak during ageing.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    You could easily mistake the 2022 Pavillon Rouge De Margaux for the Grand Vin here, and truth be told, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this actually evolve better than some of the Grand Vins from just over 10-15 years ago. A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot (the second wine got all the Petit Verdot in 2022), it offers a deep, medium to full-bodied, seamless profile as well as solid framboise, darker raspberry, currants, sandalwood, and spice aromatics, silky tannins, and outstanding length. The purity and precision paired with this level of texture and richness far exceeds the vast majority of second wines out there.

    Winemaker Philippe Bascaules explained there is a slight increase in Petit Verdot in Pavillon Rouge this vintage because he decided not to use the old block in the Grand Vin. This was mainly because the Grand Vin didn’t need any more power! Regarding the vintage, Philippe elaborated that it was an ‘easy year’, with no real problems from frost or mildew, but the only downside was the small size of the berries, which brought the yields down. The younger vines didn’t fare too well, but the old vines on gravel and limestone were superb, and they managed to keep their green leaves throughout the summer. The result was some of the most concentrated Margaux wines ever made. The addition of extra Petit Verdot in Pavillon Rouge has seemingly given it even more concentration and flair. The depth of flavour is incredible here, and the weight is definitely medium-plus but perhaps not as heavy as one might assume by reading the stats above. This is an astoundingly adroit and upright Pavillon Rouge. M. Bascaules said, ‘If you said this wine was Château Margaux blind, I could believe it!’ This is such a fresh wine, crammed with drama, depth, graphite and tension, and it promises massive potential for the future. Last year, everyone said Merlot had had its day, and this year Merlot has played a great card. Bascaules signed off with this prophetic line, ‘We are confident in nature and its capacity to react and rise to the challenge’. How right he is, as his vines have managed the extreme conditions of this vintage and delivered two magnificent wines.


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.



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.
