Notes of florals, currants and a hint of spice. Red berry and floral notes of the palate. A bit thin through the midpalate and finish. Very pleasant though.

2015 Carnival Breeze Cruise Wines (Somewhere in the Caribbean): Simply beautiful. This wine is drinking at peak right now and I found this to be the best bottle yet. I can't believe how much better this is drinking now than a few years ago, when it was just "good". The nose was utterly captivating. I am happy to have saved a few bottles. Drinking well after a splash decant.

Great material and a nice finish. Felt the wine was less integrated that would expect after 11 years but enjoyed it nevertheless.

Wine tasting with 10 others. Opened, decanted back into the bottle left for 2 hours. It is very good. Nice and smooth and full of cigar box and blackcurrants. Very enjoyable and very nice and most people agreed. 92 Points

Blending the sophisticated aromatics of floral, dark chocolate and fresh boysenberry, this medium-bodied wine is forward and fresh. It delivers a crisp, vigorous cassis finish and is filled with refined charm. The wine was produced from a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot and reached 13.5% alcohol. 91-92 Pts

Mushroom and Birthday tasting (Helsingør): Has kept very nicely. Lovely bright and pure fruit flavors but lacking intensity and aftertaste.
Still a lovely bottle.

Still quite youthful in both color and taste. Primary, with only some hints of leather and earth. Detailed, with fine grained tannins and a great, silky mouth feel. The cassis fruit was deep and mouth coating. The finish trailed off a bit too soon, but this was beautiful overall.

Moi et Didi on se croyait en Côte-Rôtie pour le nez mais en bouche...c'est Bordeaux que Didi a callé !
Deuxième fois avec ce vin..(selon CT est mes notes sont tellement confuses!!)
Bleuets et fruits rouges.
En bouche c'est très beau et bien long.Mais tellement différent de qu'on avais bu avant.
La robe est tellement bordeaux par contre.D'une jeunesse dans le style de Jeannine Sutto.
Il va vivre encore pendant facilement 10-15 ans.
Il est sur la pente montante....pas loin du plateau et il va y surfer longtemps après.

I bought this bottle in 2006, and it was the first bottle that I bought with the intention of storing. At the time, we didn't have a cellar and we've moved a few times since we bought this (so that gives you some idea of provenance, as a consequence, I couldn't suggest this bottle is representative of how this wine is supposed to taste). Nevertheless, this holds great sentimental value.

As others have noted, this is not a baby version of the first wine of Margaux; this doesn't have the amazing floral and spiced notes that I associate with that wine. Nevertheless, our bottle was drinking pretty well. It has left behind most of its fruit, and what is left is character and texture. On the nose there are clove and coffee aromas. My wife adds this reminds her of her grandmother's closet (musty, in a comforting way), sweethearts candy and frankincense/myrrh. There is a bit of VA present. On the palate, the acidity is high-toned and still pretty serious, with dusty dried fruits. There is still some gripping tannin on the finish. We enjoyed this for the trip down memory lane.

Retirement lunch at Cap Grille for my dear friend Laura on January 7th... Wine opens with subtle nose, classic Margaux accents, vanilla, cherry and leather she comes together making a wonderful pairing with our lamb chops and porterhouse steak. She loses some intensity as the hours drag, I'd consume the next bottle within an hour or so. Decent length, but nothing close to her big sister. You can tell it's Margaux, but i'd say Margaux light. I found their 2009 third wine a better value and far better potential than this Pavillon. Not to say it's bad at all, just better than most second wines, and probably a bit expensive for what it is.

Almost a ruby crystal color in the glass. Showed great currant and blackberry fruit with some leather from age on the nose and palate. Amazingly delicious from bottle open for 2-3 hours. Unfortunately I let it rest some and when I came back, it had fallen apart and had lost any vivacity. Not bad just nothing interesting left in the last third. I would recommend drinking upon opening and not getting it too much air.

I love Margaux; this is my second time with Pavillon and again it doesn't bear quite as much resemblance to the maitre as you might hope. Dark fruited and cedary to start, showing a powdery geranium nose with mineral undertones with a couple of hours in the decanter. Just not quite as much depth as you'd hope. From 375.

Aerated for 2 hours, then decanted and consumed over another hour. Deep crimson color. Nose of black currants, graphite and leather. Medium body, silky tannins and good acidity. A little hollow towards midpalate but with a nice steely cut to it. Finishes long with notes of Margaux floral spice. Probably at its plateau now but certainly no rush to drink. Excellent.

Very nice smooth wine, but tasted blind I would say it was an expensive wine. Already showing some evolution with some leather and a hint of plum. Silk and elegant, a nice wine for sure, but not outstanding.

2/8/2015 - OW_SOSPEL Likes this wine: 94 points

Belle couleur rubis tirant vers le brique, ocelle orangée, Assez lourd, larmes lentes et fines.
Nez expressif, fin, doux et charmeur de fruits rouges (cerises et fraises) et de petits fruits noirs (cassis). Bois très intégré. Fond cendreux avec une touche de poivron vert.
Attaque vive laissant apparaître un milieu de bouche très frais sur les petits fruits rouges assez discrets et des saveurs épicées complexes (réglisse et feuilles de menthe). Grande droiture !
Longue et belle finale fruitées avec des tanins très fins et très intégrés.
Vin présentant une magnifique fraicheur et beaucoup de noblesse. Très féminin, riche et délicat. Un vin droit et réellement harmonieux. Nouvelle dégustation à programmer en 2020-22.

Opened, decanted back into the bottle left for 2 hours and drank over 3 hours. It is very good. Drank it alongside a 98 Lynch Bages and this wasn't as good. It was very smooth and full of cigar box and blackcurrants. Very enjoyable and very nice but the Lynch Bages was a couple of points ahead of it. 92 Points

This bottle was flat and obviously past peak. Needed half an hour of decanting--and food--to show something of interest, and even then it didn't show well compared to most 95's of reasonable breeding.

Amazing freshness, balance of primary fruits, secondary and tertiary flavors, not super complex yet lovely layering of flavors, mid long finish. Drinks better than the 98 Mouton I had earlier in the year.
