This the greatest Pavillon Rouge ever made. Aromas of flowers, smoke, currants and raspberries follow through to a full body, with super silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is balanced and refined with wonderful depth. Hard to believe it's a second wine. Better after 2018.

Bottled in June 2012, the Pavillon Rouge represents 38% of the total production. A blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, it has a fragrant bouquet of black cherries, briary and crushed stone that is delicate and precise. I expect the aromatics to open up with bottle age. The palate is silky smooth on the entry, gliding across the palate on its super-fine tannins. It is exquisitely balanced, very pure with one of the most elegant finishes that I have encountered on a Pavillon at this stage. Wonderful. Coming back, there is a cheeky hint of black olive tapenade on the aftertaste. Tasted November 2012.

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux offers up scents of blackcurrant cordial, wild thyme and fertile loam with hints of cedar chest, pencil lead and tar. Medium-bodied, the palate is just a tad lean with chewy tannins and bold freshness, finishing on an herbal note.
