The World of Fine Wine


View From the Cellar

    April 2011, (See more on Winedoctor...) 16.5-17. points

    (Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux (Margaux)) The second wine of Margaux, this is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It has a dark hue, claretty with a black-plum colour, and a brighter rim. I find polished plum fruit on the nose. It is pretty intense and linear on the palate, very polished, defined, fresh and certainly most elegant. There is quite a silky edge to the tannins, although there is a firm and grainy substance to it. Grippy, really quite tight towards the end in fact, with a reserved fruit character. Plenty of vigour here, a feeling helped by the fresh acidity. It culminates in a supple, tannic finish. Really fine potential.
