Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux Red Bordeaux Chateau Margaux Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Chвteau Margaux, a Premier Grand Cru Classй Bordeaux, is one of the most famous wines in the world. The wine itself is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Care has been lavished on the property by a line of owners with an abiding concern for the reputation of the estate. For more than five hundred years, season after season, generations of vineyard-workers, grapeharvesters, cellar-workers, coopers and many other craftsmen have all played a part in making Chвteau Margaux what it is today: a wine with an incomparable personality, reflected in the elegant Palladian building which adorns its label. In 1977, the estate was purchased by the late Andrй Mentzelopoulos, and it is now run by his daughter, Corinne Mentzelopoulos.

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

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.

Combines both silky texture and good tension with a light chalky thread running through the middle of the almost plush plum and blackberry fruit. There s a bright cassis bush edge as well (telltale of the Petit Verdot component) and overall there s a very suave feel through the finish with a lingering jasmine edge. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.

The renowned Chateau Margaux’s 2011 boasts a dark ruby/plum color as well as a fragrant perfume of spring flowers, sweet, supple, well-integrated tannins, medium body, and the elegance and nobility expected from a great first-growth. Although it is not as powerful or concentrated as the 2009 or 2010 (no 2011s are), it possesses finesse, elegance, purity and suppleness. The wine is surprisingly approachable already yet should keep for 15–20 years.

86% cabernet sauvignon 10% merlot 2% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc. Vines are planted in 82 hectares of gravel soil with pockets of sand gravel and limestone. The average vine age is 36 years. Gorgeous deep ruby color all the way through. The nose is outstanding with a perfumed array of violet rose petal strawberry blackberry and cassis. What an elegant yet powerful expression of Margaux here. Exceptionally soft and lush on the palate with layers of pretty red fruits followed by light chocolate and essence of rose petal. Already beautiful at this infant stage this is a serious wine to behold. This is the most accessible of all the First Growths. Simply exquisite. Enjoy from 2015-2030. Alex Lallos.

This has a restrained core of steeped plum, blackberry and anise, studded with tobacco and roasted cedar notes. The structure is silky but persistent, with an almost-succulent feel through the finish, while warm bergamot, singed cedar, vanilla and sanguine hints define the finish. Discreet today, but shows the balance and precision to unfold slowly with cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2030.

Bright ruby. High-pitched red berry and floral aromas show very good intensity and a sexy spicecake nuance. Juicy penetrating and seamless offering vibrant raspberry and cherry flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Finishes lively and long with resonating spiciness. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
