90% cabernet sauvignon 7% merlot 1.5% cabernet franc and 1.5% petit verdot. Super perfumed aromas of crushed violet black cherry blackberry liquor and crushed rock flourish on the nose trailed by vanilla and kirsch. The palate exhibits more blackberry and cassis along with chocolate and exotic Asian spice. This shows amazing purity and elegance for a wine of such concentration and power and comes across as silky smooth thanks to the fine grained tannins. 13.5% alcohol. This is Margaux a

Margaux - A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot the wine is defined in part because of the effective low yields. Only 38% of the harvest was included in the Grand Vin. The rest of the harvest was divided as follows. An equal portion of 38% went into Pavillon Rouge. The remaining wine was divided between their third and the new fourth wine. 210 marks what could be the lowest production ever recorded in Chateau Margaux. . Deep ruby on color

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Pavillon Rouge has an introverted nose at first but it opens nicely in the glass to reveal blackberry sage and undergrowth scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle spice-tinged entry. Good extraction here almost honeyed in the mouth but there is the acidity to keep everything in check. This Pavillon Rouge is "sweet n tender" and should age well. Tasted January 2014. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

A mouthwatering tobacco leaf note leads the way quickly followed by steeped black currant and fig fruit with dark tar and ganache on the back end. Roasted alder and juniper hints hang in the background. Extremely backward with a firm tannic structure this is girded for the long haul. Judging from the finely beaded acidity and lilting echo of lilac that peeks in now this should acquire sensational aromatics and incredible grace with age. Best from 2018 through 2040. -J.M.

The 2010 is a brilliant Chateau Margaux, as one might expect in this vintage. The percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend hit 90%, the balance Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and only 38% of the crop made it into the Chateau Margaux. Paul Pontallier, the administrator, told me that this wine has even higher levels of tannin than some other extraordinary vintages such as 2005, 2000, 1996, etc. Deep purple, pure and intense, with floral notes, tremendous opulence and palate presence, this is a wine of considerable nobility. With loads of blueberry, black currant and violet-infused fruit and a heady alcohol level above 13.5% (although that looks modest compared to several other first growths, particularly Chateau Latour and Chateau Haut-Brion), its beautifully sweet texture, ripe tannin, abundant depth and profound finish all make for another near-perfect wine that should age effortlessly for 30–40 years.

90% cabernet sauvignon 7% merlot 1.5% cabernet franc and 1.5% petit verdot. Super perfumed aromas of crushed violet black cherry blackberry liquor and crushed rock flourish on the nose trailed by vanilla and kirsch. The palate exhibits more blackberry and cassis along with chocolate and exotic Asian spice. This shows amazing purity and elegance for a wine of such concentration and power and comes across as silky smooth thanks to the fine grained tannins. 13.5% alcohol. This is Margaux a pure expression and an absolutely stunning wine! Better than 2009 and perhaps one of the best ever. Tasted at Chateau Margaux. Alex Lallos.

Winemaker's Notes:

"...The 2010 Pavillon Rouge (66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot) hit 14% natural alcohol. *Paul Pontallier proclaimed it the best they have ever made*, representing only 38% of production. (This wine also undergoes a serious selection.) Plenty of black fruits, violets, forest floor and earth are present in this wonderfully textured, opulent wine, which will provide immediate gratification when it is released. It should drink nicely for up to 15 or more years."*Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (90-92 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*
