2001 Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux

Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/29/2015 - La Grappe wrote: 87 points

Medium colour, showing maturity; a delicate nose; the palate has soft, rounded fruit which is elegant but not particularly intense. This may be drying out a little, so probably needs drinking.

deep ruby/garnet with minimal sediment, this wine is fully mature

Consistent with my previous note on this wine; wonderfully complex nose of black cherry, berries, date and spice.

Complex and fantastic tasting with long finish.

Drink up if you enjoy claret for the fruit

Wine purchased en primeur and stored in a eurocave untouched since purchase in 2002. Cork in perfect condition.
Wine colour has retained an impressive darkened ruby red which excited us as we poured. Our excitement quickly waned however with tasking. Acidity dominated in the mouth as fruit diminished dramatically since my previous tasting of 5 years past. Typically refined aromatics and flavours of black fruit in the mouth were clearly present but off balanced against acidity that had the upper hand. This second wine of Margaux was meant for early consumption and that is quite clear.

Ready to drink, not as big a wine as big brother but nice structure and elegance with a home made French dinner.

7/16/2015 - NickBurwood Likes this wine: 90 points

A "bonus" singleton purchased in a mixed lot of other wines.
2 hour decant (would recommend no more than half that time in retrospect). Nose of ripe blackcurrant and cherry, a touch of truffle, liquorice and integrated oak. Focussed in the mouth, remarkably elegant for its age although the fruit had faded somewhat from my initial tasting glass. Good length.
Only a marginally aggressive acidity prevented this excellent wine from exceeding the 90 points awarded. This bottle was in relatively good knick but probably 10yrs past its best - so drink up!

Tuesday Night Double Blind $60+ (Bin 75): Deep crimson, some clarity, dull red rim; yeah, funk, chocolate, cigar, green pepper, Bordeaux, noble, red cherry, raspberry, currant; dusty on the palate, intense, leather, ox blood, long finish, digs a trench down the middle of the palate, saddle leather, lozenge, very gravel driven on the finish, strong tannin, good acid, noble, just a slight prickle on the finish from the ripeness and alcohol; was in Pauillac and called 2003 Laforts de Latour...wrong second label.

The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like mineral and blackberry. The body is full. The wine has fleshy texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

beautiful bottle. Open 30 minutes before consumption. Very well balanced, has lost the acidity that plagued it three years ago, some remaining fruit, beautiful mid palate, excellent tannins. Drink now with meat to round it up.

Appearance: Bright and clear, it has deep ruby color, with garnet rims and legs.
Nose: Clean, with medium intensity aromas of black fruit such as plum and blackberry, with some cassis, oak notes of cedar and smoke, pungent spice of licorice, dairy notes of cream, maturity notes of tobacco and savory, with a little herbaceous note of green bell pepper. The wine is developing.
Palate: Dry with medium (+) acidity, the wine has medium (+) tannin of ripe and silky texture, showing medium alcohol and medium (+) body, with medium (+) intensity flavors of black fruit such as blackcurrant, blackberry and plum, oak notes of cedar and some vanilla, pungent spice of licorice, animal notes of leather. The wine has a medium (+) finish.
Conclusion: Good quality Margaux with good structure and highlighting the typicity of what a nice Margaux should taste like, on the nose it is showing quite a complex range of aromas, with nice intensity. On the palate it shows similar range of flavors, with good acidity and tannin, but having even a higher concentrated flavors mean it could still be further developed for another 3-5 years easily, but already good to drink now.

Needed about 1h to wake up. Beautiful smell of red fruit, cigar box and forest floor. The smell is reflected in the taste. Very elegant, balanced and with a medium long after taste. Really really good now and no need to wait longer.

From jéroboam. Gorgeous nose, open, scented without much depth but nicely evolved and pretty. Still good texture although there doesn't seem to be lot of tannins left. Fresh, round, gentle and elegant. Good finish. Ready to drink especially in standard format bottles. 89-91

Surprisingly lovely. Cedar, some florals, cassis. Complex and packing subtle punch for a wine that first seems medium bodied. Some tannin but not too austere. Probably at peak.

Initial nose of coffee, stewed plums, and macerated sour cherry. Juicy acidity on the palate with brooding black plum fruit and hints of herbaciousness.

Loads of woody tannins up-front upon opening, but in 30 min this becomes extremely balanced, cigar box, baseball field dirt (slid head first enough to know what that tastes like), dark cherry, and a creamy silky textured finish. This is quite good, but honestly not worth the money. Drinks well now, I'd drink up over the next several years.

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.

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.
