Editorial Reviews for Chateau Pavillon Rouge Margaux
Opens rather oaky but not spicy, raw woody, cedary with notes of dried peppers and cassis under the creosote edged wood. With time a nice note of crystalized floral tones begins to emerge. Full and slightly chunky in the mouth with bright acidity and absolutely polished tannins. The palate is richly fruited with red berry notes that are ever so slightly gamy. The finish is very long and offers up a classic array of cigar box and slice tones. best after 3 hours in the decanter but finished shortly after that. Give it and additional 2 years. 2011-2024 91pts
This shows its age and the quality of the vintage with it's ethereal nose of tobacco and dry earth. In the mouth this is very evolved and while light weight there is undeniable elegance as the palate remains focused with a graceful core of slightly leathery red fruit that remains delicious. 87pts
Very spicy character of this wine...fruity flavour is closed
very famous in china. little salt and easy to drink.
Smooth and well-balanced. My first Château Margaux, and I only had one glass. Cannot say that I understand why this wine would be 10 to 15 times the price of other good Margaux wines, but it is surely a wonderful wine. Drank it too young, I know... but it was served by the château, and beggars can't be choosers.
Could be one of my favorite, starting from expanding aroma, well balanced with aged taste lasting long.
opened a couple of years to early. but still a knock out wine as all marguax are and what you expect. it has very few sustitues in the same wine range of quality texture and complexity but the fun is to store these and go seeking out equivallents, enjoy this at great cost as sadness will come when you run out ...

A surprisingly fresh Margaux considering that it
Shows a tight nose but manages to convey pure fresh notes of red fruit and violet. Almost sleek with fine-grained tannins carrying the red currant paste and iron accents. The plum skin-tinged finish sings displaying remarkable integration already. A very impressive showing today. Tasted non-blind. J.M. Wine Spectator.
An austere wine that has distinct acidity and a black-currant character. The texture is tannic and dry but its fragrant with a light green note that comes through at the end. Wine Enthusiast.
The 2012 Chateau Margaux 87% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot was picked around September 25th with the early ripening Merlot and the heart of the harvest was in early October. Most of the harvest was in before the rains. It has a very fragrant bouquet with macerated dark cherries minerals cold stone a touch of seaweed and a seam of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with superb tension on the entry. It is very focused with tensile tannins. There is

More flint barbecue smoke crushed rock spring flower blueberry and black raspberry characteristics are present in the full-bodied 2011 St.-Joseph Les Granits. Uncommonly fleshy and seductive it should drink nicely for a decade or more. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Combines both silky texture and good tension, with a light chalky thread running through the middle of the almost plush plum and blackberry fruit. Theres a bright cassis bush edge as well (telltale of the Petit Verdot component), and overall theres... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 1500ml
