2005 Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, Margaux

The 2005 vintage was of course an excellent one across Bordeaux and Château Margaux itself excelled. 2005 Pavillon Rouge is considered to be one of the best second wines ever produced by Château Margaux and, while more immediately accessible than its big-sibling, it shows much of the opulence and refinement of the Grand Vin. Seductive, pure and rich, the nose is beautifully floral and displays delightful harmony. Although the cuvée is high in Merlot, it is abundantly clear that the selection process, first of fruit and later, at the assemblage stage, was carried out to exacting standards.
