Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux 2010
• Domaine: Château Margaux
• A.O.C.: Margaux
• Classification: First Growth, 1er Grand Cru Classé in 1855
Pavillon Rouge is the second wine of Château Margaux. Approachable even when still young, yet with cellaring potential. A perfect companion wine to drink while letting the grand vin Château Margaux to cellar for decades to come.
"The second wine, the 2010 Pavillon Rouge (essentially two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot with small quantities and Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) looks to be a wine to age for 20 or more years, but it is quite drinkable already. Soft, supple and luscious, with oodles of blue and black fruits, the floral character one expects, and not a trace of herbaceousness, oak or aggressiveness, this is a beautiful, round, generous wine to drink over the next 18-20 years."
