This is wonderful to taste, with plums, berries, strawberries, and flowers. It's full and creamy textured, with gorgeous ripe tannins and a long, long finish. Such balance. Amazing tannin quality. Second wine of Margaux. One of best Pavillon Rouges ever. Try after 2018.

Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux features an expressive, beautifully floral nose of dried roses and candied violets over a core of kirsch, Black Forest cake and fragrant earth with touches of black tea and cigar box. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft, plush, elegant and open-knit with an effortlessness to its character and a perfumed finish.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Pavillon Rouge '09 has a high-toned bouquet with lavish dark cherries, creme de cassis and blueberry notes. It settles down with a few swirls and becomes increasingly refined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. Harmonious and silky smooth, this is not a powerful Margaux 2009, but it is very well crafted and has a lovely saline finish. Tasted January 2013.
