A wine that shows a lovely finesse and beauty with orange peel flowers blueberries and raspberries. Full and super fine texture. It goes on for minutes. I love the refinement. Paul Pontailler says it's the best Pavillon... A wine that shows a lovely finesse and beauty with orange peel flowers blueberries and raspberries. Full and super fine texture. It goes on for minutes. I love the refinement. Paul Pontailler says it's the best Pavillon that he has ever made. Second wine of Margaux

Rather dense and muscular with a broad range of red and black fruits roasted apple wood and red licorice flavors. Features an iron-packed finish but with a velvety coating. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

A blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon 4% Petit Verdot (from plots replanted by Paul Pontallier 14-15 years ago) and 30% Merlot the Pavillon has a very dense bouquet of blackberry a touch of cassis violet and a little graphite/oyster shell. The palate is medium-bodied with very structured tannins the acidity very prominent on the entry and cutting a swathe though that blackberry graphite and just a faint hint of blueberry. There is bewitching symmetry towards the long finish. Superb.

Paul Pontallier proclaimed it the best they have ever made representing only 38% of production. (This wine also undergoes a serious selection.) Plenty of black fruits violets forest floor and earth are present in this wonderfully textured opulent wine which will provide immediate gratification when it is released in a year. It should drink nicely for up to 15 or more years.

A gorgeously perfumed nose of black cherry violets boysenberry espresso and chocolate. This is absolutely delicious showing brilliant texture integrated tannins and a super refined finish. This will be an age-worthy Pavillon but also a great choice to drink while the Grand Vin Margaux is fast asleep in your cellar. Absolutely delicious and the best Pavillon Rouge I have ever tasted.
