This is a really lovely Pavillon Rouge, the nose having really blossomed since I last encountered this wines. Very pure with slightly earthy black fruits but with outstanding definition. Blackberry, raspberry and just a hint of coca. The full-bodied palate is very well balanced, still nascent and perhaps a little unresolved but gradually developing a sensuous, silky mouthfeel. A touch of smoke on the finish, this is fresh, surprisingly complex Pavillon Rouge that needs a little more time, but should have a long future. Drink 2010-2020. Tasted July 2008.

Margaux’s second wine, the 2004 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux, may turn out to be outstanding. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by fleshy notes of black currants, cherries, smoke, earth, and spring flowers. Lovely, ripe, and opulent, it is best consumed during its first 10-15 years of life.
