Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

94-95 Points, James Suckling: "Very concentrated and tannic Pavillon Rouge. Muscular. Full body and lots of intense fruit. Four-square." 04/17 91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux contains the highest proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon ever at 84%, with 13% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, representing 26% of the total harvest. Matured in 50-60% new oak, it has a very pure redcurrant and cranberry scented bouquet with a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin on the entry, thanks to the high percentage of Cabernet, and it is saline in the mouth with a pinch of white pepper towards the finish. It will need three or four years in bottle." 4/17 #230 90-93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinuos: "The 2016 Pavillon Rouge is a gorgeous second wine, and one of the best recent vintages I have tasted. There is remarkable purity and precision to the flavors, while all the elements are in perfect balance for a wine at this level. Red-toned fruits, sweet floral notes and silky tannins infuse this expressive, flat-out delicious wine. The 84% Cabernet Sauvignon is the highest ever here. Quite simply, the 2016 is a superb Pavillon Rouge. Tasted two times." 4/17
