Tasting Notes

The light, fresh, sensual, round 2006 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux exhibits moderate levels of dark cherry and red currant fruit accompanied by background herb and spice characteristics. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Score: 86Robert Parker,, February 2009

Tasted at Margaux. A bright ruby/purple hue. A very lush, voluptuous, alcoholic nose, with well-integrated new oak and a sense of minerality. Cassis, violets and blackberries, all with good definition. The palate is full-bodied, quite tannic and masculine but with a nice tension. Very focused but rather abrupt on the finish. Still, very fine. Tasted April 2007.

Score: 88/90Neal Martin,, April 2007

40% M, 5% PV and CF and the rest CS. This second wine represents 55% of the crop. All the great Cabernet went into the grand vin, we were told.
Mid to light crimson. Highly aromatic. Very lifted and fragrant. Ralatively light and even a bit skinny. Nervy and a little bit green even. Only medium weight. Light dry sandy tannins. Pretty fast fade on the finish. Seems to me a relatively weak Pavillon Rouge.
