Pavillon Rouge 2016

 A case of 6 Bottles (750ML)

A Pavillon rouge 2016, a second wine combining power and tenderness

This second wine of Château Margaux, resulting from a strict selection (26% of the harvest), has improved in precision and quality thanks to a constant search for the best lots. The Pavillon rouge 2016 incorporates 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.

The Pavillon Rouge, aged in 50 to 60% expresses floral notes, then flesh black fruits. Stirring reveals some graphite notes. The nose is very fresh. The palate is tender with a refreshing juice on very straight tannins (due to the high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend), but very civilized nonetheless. The palate ends on a saline note and the wine on a whole has a real weight and a very pleasant balance. The wine has gained volume in this vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
