Château Margaux - Pavillon Rouge

Tasting notes

90 Points - The Wine Advocate

”The 2014 Pavillon Rouge is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Bottled in July 2016, it remains quite rich and outgoing on the nose with copious red cherry, blackberry and spice-box aromas. With aeration it reveals a little more sous-bois, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with a tightly knit opening. Certainly this has lost the corpulence that it showed in barrel, lost that puppy fat. Now the linearity comes through, engendered by the cool nights during the growing season, and still delivers that mineral-rich finish. I still maintain that it will need three years in bottle just to soften the tannins." - Neal Martin

    Château Margaux

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Château Margaux, at the heart of the village of the same name, is one of Bordeaux’s greatest estates, and also one of its largest. Covering 260 hectares, the park and its exquisite Palladian mansion house are as well known a wine landmark as any other the world over. 87 hectares are planted to vine, with the celebrated Pavilion Blanc being produced from a further 12 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc.

    But it is the red Grand Vin that makes Château Margaux so special. The most elegant and floral of the great properties of Bordeaux and one of the original four Premier Grands Crus Classés, it epitomises the style of the commune.

    “There cannot be a better bottle than a bottle of Margaux.”Thomas Jefferson

    With a history dating back to the 12th Century, Château Margaux has been in the hands of the Mentzelopoulos family since 1978 and since then has consistently produced the finest wines in the Médoc. Now under the leadership of Madame Corinne Mentzelopoulos, recent developments have included a fabulous new cellar designed by Norman Foster, sympathetically dug into and blending with the surrounding countryside.

    The whole world seems to have their eyes riveted on Bordeaux, where the demand for these great wines never stops growing.
