Tasting Notes Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux 1996
First tasted in February 2001 when it was very impressive, tannic and backward. But a perplexing bottle at Farr's 1996 horizontal in September 2006. A much lighter, more ethereal nose than the second wine here. Wild strawberry, redcurrant and cherry, but less intense. A sweet cherry/strawberry infused palate. Not as highly extracted as the other wines. Light and approachable. Linear finish.
