    (Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux) It was off to Margaux, where the incredibly warm and welcoming Paul Pontallier was at our service. Whenever I see Paul, I just feel like I am at home, no matter where I am. He is a true ambassador for Bordeaux and, of course, Chateau Margaux. We started with a 2008 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux. Its nose was pretty, perfumed yet full. There were still stern minerals enveloping its backbone of fruit. Earth and minerals kept creeping out more, as did a hint of hay. The palate was fresh, light and pleasing, but still cedary and with some heat and a touch of spiciness on its finish. The palate was clean, showing mahogany flavors. Paul admired its ‘purity and aromatic complexity’ (91).

    (Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux Margaux) The second wine of Margaux, accounting for 47% of the crop, this is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. This is less Merlot than usual. The nose has attractive, smoky, gravelly, gently perfumed fruit. Pure and cool in character, with a firm midpalate structure. There is a slightly biting character to the tannins, giving an austere and dry structure. It gently builds in style on the palate, and will need time to show its best.
