(WE94-96 points) While this wine has high acidity, it also has intense tannins and concentrated black-cherry fruits. It is poised between a firm, concentrated structure and sophisticated fruitiness, suggesting the wine will age well over many years.

(JS94-95 points) Very concentrated and tannic Pavillon Rouge. Muscular. Full body and lots of intense fruit. Four-square.

(JL93-95 points) Ruby red in color, this is what Japan must smell like when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. Followed by an array of sweet plum and earthy notes, this medium-bodied wine is elegant and sophisticated with sweet, fresh red berries in the finish. Balance, finesse, refinement is its mantra. The wine was produced from a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, reaching 13% Alcohol with pH of 3.6. Of the harvest, 26% was used for Pavillon Rouge du Margaux.

(WA91-93 points) The 2016 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux contains the highest proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon ever at 84%, with 13% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, representing 26% of the total harvest. Matured in 50-60% new oak, it has a very pure redcurrant and cranberry scented bouquet with a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin on the entry, thanks to the high percentage of Cabernet, and it is saline in the mouth with a pinch of white pepper towards the finish. It will need three or four years in bottle. - Neal Martin

(AG90-93 points) The 2016 Pavillon Rouge is a gorgeous second wine, and one of the best recent vintages I have tasted.

(AG90-93 points) The 2016 Pavillon Rouge is a gorgeous second wine, and one of the best recent vintages I have tasted. There is remarkable purity and precision to the flavors, while all the elements are in perfect balance for a wine at this level. Red-toned fruits, sweet floral notes and silky tannins infuse this expressive, flat-out delicious wine. The 84% Cabernet Sauvignon is the highest ever here. Quite simply, the 2016 is a superb Pavillon Rouge. Tasted two times.
