Scores and tasting notes
Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. There is little on the nose: touches of gravel and smoke but not much in the way of fruite. The palate is better with fine tannins, an attractive fleshy texture with good acidity. Harmonious and feminine towards the finish with dark cherries and a touch of cassis. It seems rather feral and earthy on the finish. Tasted January 2011.

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux has a crisp and well defined bouquet of black dusky fruit, sandalwood, bay leaf and a touch of warm gravel. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and impressive structure. There is a linearity about this Pavillon Rouge, with a dash of white pepper towards the finish, as it clings to the mouth and says, I'm going to last longer than you think in bottle. This initially suggested a drinking window of around a decade, but now a decade on, it has other ideas. Tasted February 2017.
