This year again, the Pavillon Rouge has been subjected to very strict selection (26% of the harvest) of the wines from plots some of which were still producing Château Margaux just a few years ago. The strictness of this selection demonstrates our constant demanding attitude with regard to Pavillon Rouge.
The blend also denotes these efforts: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. Thanks to magnificent batches of Cabernet Sauvignon, the tannic framework of this wine is both dense and silky, brilliant and long.
With its dense texture and high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, this is an impressively powerful second wine of Château Margaux. Acidity and dark blueberry flavors are concentrated, with layers of tannins that demand aging. Drink from 2023.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux (composed of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot) bursts forth with exuberant Morello cherries, black raspberries and cassis scents accented by touches of menthol, dark chocolate and garrigue plus a waft of tree bark. The palate is medium-bodied, very elegant, vivacious and fresh with satiny tannins and a nice long finish.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
