Tasted at Bordeaux Index Chateau Margaux dinner at The Square. A deep garnet hue. The nose is reticent at first but unfurls nicely with sappy, red-berried fruit, bilberry, a touch of spice and more violet aromas than before. The palate is medium-bodied, smooth and seductive on the entry, a real harlot of a Margaux! Lithe and focused, cranberry and raspberry with a touch of piquancy towards the finish. Quite tannic, more than I anticipated but a stupendously fine Second Wine. Drink 2011-2020. Tasted October 2008.

Neal Martin - Wine Journal Jul 2009


Excellent balance along with copious quantities of sweet black cherry and cassis fruit are found in the 2001 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux. Light to medium-bodied, with a style similar to its bigger sister, but neither the concentration nor length, it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years.
