2010 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux offers up scents of blackcurrant cordial, wild thyme and fertile loam with hints of cedar chest, pencil lead and tar. Medium-bodied, the palate is just a tad lean with chewy tannins and bold freshness, finishing on an herbal note.
Grape VarietyCabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Grapes Cab Sauv 66%, Merlot 30%, Cab Franc 4% Producer The quality of Ch. Margaux’s 2nd wine has become very close to that of the 1st because all the plots involved contributed to the blending of Ch. Margaux not so long ago. Tasting Notes. A wine able to age for 20 years but is quite drinkable already.
