Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

2009 is perhaps the greatest young Château Margaux we have tasted over the last 30 years. Mother nature could not have done it all by herself; barely 36% of the crop (i.e. just 31% by the time it is bottled) went into the first wine - a drastic selection for such a vintage. Still, in 2009, she surpassed herself. She allowed the greatest terroirs, whatever their grape variety, to bring their fruit to exceptional ripeness, providing a wine of wonderful concentration, finesse, balance and freshness. The Cabernet (87% of the blend) has no equivalent other than 2005, but it is more tender. The only two batches of Merlot that were kept (9%) have no equivalent at all. As for the Cabernet Franc (2%) and the Petit Verdot (2%), they performed at their highest levels. The 2009 Château Margaux is an unparalleled vintage in its tannic power and fullness (reminding us of 2005) and its softness (reminiscent of 1990). And since its alcoholic degree is barely over 13, its finish remains fresh, flavoursome and of astonishing length. (September 2010)

67% Cabernet Sauvignon 29% Merlot 4% Petit Verdot. Aged in 50% new French oak. Dense core with a brilliant ruby rim. Bursts with black fruits on the nose followed by a nice perfume of violets and acacia flowers. Rich and concentrated showing velvety tannins and a beautiful core of dark fruit. This is a massive Pavillon with sweet tannins throughout. Dense yet charming. In a word - `Suave . Bravo. Alex Lallos.
