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

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.

Good deep red-ruby. Deep but reticent aromas of redcurrant, tobacco leaf, licorice and loam; I dont find the typical floral high notes of Margaux. Juicy, fine-grained and suave, with good definition and a seamless, spherical texture to the currant a... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Potentially perfect is the 2006 Ermitage Le Pavillon. This is a monumental wine that also reminds me of the 1991. Inky black/purple to the rim, with an extraordinary nose of subtle smoke, melted licorice, creme de cassis, truffle, and graphite, full-... Robert Parker.

Very powerful and rich. Fantastic. Full, silky and structured. Yet layered and rich, with loads of mineral, violet and coffee character. Incredible. So much finesse in the nose. What a wine. Similar to the 1995, which received 100 points. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml

This has a wonderful nose of perfume, sandalwood, ripe plum and berries. Full-bodied, with seamless tannins and a long finish. Gorgeous. Best after 2015. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Margaux, Chateau 750ml

It is worth noting that when the bottled 2006 Chateau Margaux, which appeared closed and less impressive than I had predicted from barrel, was retasted alongside the remarkable 2008, I elevated my score to 94+. It does not possess the size or power o... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Margaux, Chateau 750ml

The 2nd wine from Chateau Margaux which was rated 93-95 by Robert Parker with supporting text suggesting that the score could be raised when the wine is evaluated from bottle. The Pavillon Rouge provides much of the magical Margaux perfume and intensoty at 1/10th the price of the Chateau bottling!
