Chateau Pavillon de Boyrein Graves Rouge 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

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.

Liquid velvet, with stunning length and a caressing mouthfeel, as layers of creamed plum, blackberry coulis and steeped black currant fruit glides along, seamlessly intertwined with black tea, mulled blood orange, incense and lilac. Hints of mesquite and alder hang subtly in the background, and the structure, evident and massive, has melded wonderfully. —Non-blind Château Margaux vertical (December 2013). Best from 2018 through 2040.

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.

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 with an enticing perfume filled with smoke cedar cassis violets oak tobacco spice and black raspberries. But that s not where the excitement is found. In the mouth pure elegance silk satin and velvet incredibly plush refined polished and long this intensely pure Cabernet Sauvignon based wine remains on your palate for at least 60 seconds. 2010 Chateau Margaux exemplifies precision purity balance and elegance with a seamless finish. Everything is in balance with perfect harmony. Je

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.

A great wine that is just starting out. The high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend gives the structured, black currant character. Dark chocolate and layers of wood are forward, revealing how young the wine is. And then the fruit, so rich and powerful, brings deliciousness to the firm, dense structure. Age for many years.
