The 2016 Pavilion Rouge is absolutely sensational and one of the finest ever for this second wine of Château Margaux. Composed of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot this instantly impresses as it shows off its classic Margaux character with lovely aromas of ripe dark fruits, crème de cassis, graphite and peppery spices all taking shape in the glass. On the palate this is beautifully structured with wonderful intensity and concentration. It continues to impress as it takes on wonderful freshness framed by flavors of red and dark fruits that collide with coffee grounds and anise. The textural richness, depth and precision is simply astonishing for a second wine, and exceeds the level that many Châteaux strive for in their Grand Vin. This is an incredible release for Château Margaux, and while the stunning 2016 Pavilion Rouge will require significant bottle age, its gorgeous character is already quite evident is this sensational wine.
