Big, round, and juicy, with lots of plummy and chocolate character. Full and round, very yummy. Why wait? Find the wine

Also a stunning wine, the 2003 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux is a sleeper of the vintage. Much fresher and less evolved than I would expect a second wine to be from this vintage, it is a Margaux-like effort with a flowery character, good precision and freshness, red and black currant notes, and an attractive, medium-bodied, surprisingly concentrated mouthfeel. It is clearly one of the finest second wines made in this vintage. It can be consumed over the next 5-8 years.

Tasted blind at Farr Vintner's Left Bank tasting. A potent, menthol tinged bouquet that bears more semblances to Australia than Bordeaux. The palate is full-bodied with chewy tannins, touches of cloves inflecting the chewy black fruit. Sappy and quite primal towards the finish. Tasted October 2010.
