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

Editorial Reviews for Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux Red Bordeaux Chateau Margaux Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
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.
Two and a half glasses
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. Wine Spectator.
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.
Vivid ruby. An exotically nose evokes cherry compote blackberry and smoky Indian spices. Fleshy sweet and concentrated with a distinctly spicy quality to it dark berry flavors. Impressively lush and broad on the persistent finish with suave tannins adding shape. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
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. ... Alex Lallos. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Margaux, Chateau 3000ml
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.
The 2011 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux is one of the finest examples of this cuvee I have ever tasted. It hit 13% natural alcohol and represents only 28% of the harvest. This blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot a... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 3000ml
The more flamboyant California-styled 2011 Ermitage Le Meal Blanc is from a warmer site with a more southerly exposure. It offers up notes of wet rocks tangerines peaches and a striking scent reminiscent of the famous New Orleans dish bananas Foster. I know that sounds weird but that s what it smelled like when I first put my nose in the glass. This exuberant exotic ostentatious white Hermitage may be controversial but for me it was over-the-top perfection. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
