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.

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.

The second wine, the 2010 Pavillon Rouge (essentially two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot with small quantities and Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) looks to be a wine to age for 20 or more years, but... The second wine, the 2010 Pavillon Rouge (essentially two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot with small quantities and Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) looks to be a wine to age for 20 or more years, but it is quite drinkable already. Soft, supple and luscious, with oodles of blue and black fruits, the floral character one expects, and not a trace of herbaceousness, oak or aggressiveness, this is a beautiful, round, generous wine to drink over the next 18-20 years. - Robert Parker

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

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Pavillon Rouge has an introverted nose at first, but it opens nicely in the glass to reveal blackberry, sage and undergrowth scents. The palate is medium-bodied... Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Pavillon Rouge has an introverted nose at first, but it opens nicely in the glass to reveal blackberry, sage and undergrowth scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle, spice-tinged entry. Good extraction here, almost honeyed in the mouth but there is the acidity to keep everything in check. This Pavillon Rouge is "sweet 'n tender" and should age well.

Rather wild aromas of spicy cassis, scorched earth, minerals and truffle, plus a resiny nuance. Broad, lush and powerful for a second wine, with creamy dark berry, graphite and underbrush flavors of noteworthy intensity. I find more porcini than fresh fruit here, and the tannins are still youthfully chewy, but this is an impressive Pavillon Rouge.
