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.
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.
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.

(Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux) Bricking very dark red violet color; lovely, mature, tart cassis, tart currant, blackberry nose; tasty, maturing, tart berry, blackberry, tart currant palate; will go 10 years; medium-plus finish
(Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux Margaux) This is dark and glossy, with a deep core showing good concentration out to a claretty-pink rim. Still showing its youth on the nose, with barrel-derived aromas of toffee and toasted oak which dominate the fruit. Clearly this remains very embryonic. Full and unsurprisingly sweetly creamy on entry, smothered in toasty oak, but with lots of structure beneath this superficial layer. Deep, slightly brawny fruit character, very high quality, with a tannic finish. Still so young, but with great potential.
