Pavillon Blanc Bottle 2010
"...The 2010 Pavillon Rouge (66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot) hit 14% natural alcohol. *Paul Pontallier proclaimed it the best they have ever made*, representing only 38% of production. (This wine also undergoes a serious selection.) Plenty of black fruits, violets, forest floor and earth are present in this wonderfully textured, opulent wine, which will provide immediate gratification when it is released. It should drink nicely for up to 15 or more years."*Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (90-92 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*

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
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. Wine Spectator.
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
Smoke cassis oak and violets this wine combines delicate textures with sweet soft berries black and red fruits and silky tannins make up this charming Margaux. Jeff Leve.
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Pavillon Rouge has an introverted nose at first but it opens nicely in the glass to reveal blackberry sage and undergrowth scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle spice-tinged entry. Good extraction here almost honeyed in the mouth but there is the acidity to keep everything in check. This Pavillon Rouge is "sweet n tender" and should age well. Tasted January 2014. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

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
Amazingly dark purple. Very very strongly Cabernet Sauvignon (90% of the blend - only 2006 matched it) with some light vegetation at first which opened out and mellowed to something utterly seductive in the glass. Dry and intense. Very rich on the front and amazingly supple - it smells as though it may be going to be a bit of brute but on the palate it is still so intense and polished initially but then it is clear that there are masses and masses of tannins. There is noble fine perfectly con
