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.

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.

This is lovely, with a powerful backdrop of graphite and tar, harnessed by flavors of velvety plum, steeped fig and black currant preserves. The long incense- and black tea-filled finish completes the seduction. Refined... This is lovely, with a powerful backdrop of graphite and tar, harnessed by flavors of velvety plum, steeped fig and black currant preserves. The long incense- and black tea-filled finish completes the seduction. Refined, defined and poised. Best from 2014 through 2025. 10,833 cases made. –JM

Dense and structured, this second wine from Château Margaux is magnificent. There are hints of bitter chocolate, along with tarry fruit. It is very textured, just hinting at extraction. The tannins are rounded... Dense and structured, this second wine from Château Margaux is magnificent. There are hints of bitter chocolate, along with tarry fruit. It is very textured, just hinting at extraction. The tannins are rounded and velvet-like in character. It’s a wine for medium-term aging.

2010 Pavillon Rouge: Actually higher in alcohol than its bigger sister Chateau Margaux the 2010 Pavillon Rouge (66% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot) hit 14% natural alcohol.

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.

Very noble indeed on the nose. Lovely supple stuff with clear first-growth influence. Very polished and dense and on the back the tannins really really build up! This is a wine for the long term!

This is a wine for the long term! Cool dry finish. Very graceful. Feminine and very Margaux. 17.5 out of 20
