Editorial Reviews for Chateau Pavillon Rouge Margaux
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.
External Reviews for Chateau Pavillon Rouge Margaux
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.
Combines both silky texture and good tension, with a light chalky thread running through the middle of the almost plush plum and blackberry fruit. Theres a bright cassis bush edge as well (telltale of the Petit Verdot component), and overall theres... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 1500ml
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.
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.
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
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.
