The second wine, the 2008 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux, represents 47% of the crop (keep in mind that 17% of the total crop was sold off in bulk), and is composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, and the rest mostly Petit Verdot with a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc. It is a beautiful wine exhibiting classic purity along with red and black fruits intermixed with licorice, tobacco leaf, and floral nuances. Sweet, round tannins, and a lovely forward freshness suggest this stunning second wine should drink well young, yet last for 15+ years.

Currant and berries on the nose, with hints of vanilla and coffee. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and lovely fruit. Refined and pretty, but short. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 750ml

Aromatic wine, with richness as well as soft tannins. It's quite a mouthful of explosive red berry fruits, with delicious acidity. The finish is is easy and rounded. R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 750ml

87% Cabernet Sauvignon; 10% Merlot; 1.5% of Cab Franc & Petite Verdot each. Only a third of the harvest went into the final selection of their top wine. Margaux got it right in 2008, showing that with sacrifice, fine wine was made. Classic notes o... David Derby. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml

A dense wine, but without huge power. It goes for the elegant side of Margaux, soft, beautiful. The black cherry fruits are lively, juicy, with extra fresh acidity. Not big, but definitely elegant. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml
