Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux 2009
Tasting Notes Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux 2009
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.
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.
