Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92

Bordeaux Index

Plenty of bright red and black fruit with a hint of black tea and gravel. Quite vibrant, fresh palate with crunchy red fruit, quite present tannins making for a surprisingly powerful structure. Not a long or dramatic wine but nicely balanced and fresh.

Wine Advocate

Aromas of plums, raspberries and sweet spices introduce the 2021 Pavillon Rouge, a medium to full-bodied, velvety and vibrant wine that's impressively rich and mouthfilling, revealing a deep core of fruit framed by powdery tannins and lively acids, concluding with a long, saline finish. The blend is 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, and Philippe Bascaules observes that parcels planted 20 years ago and destined for the grand vin when they're a bit older are increasingly making the cut for Pavillon Rouge.

Jancis Robinson

Floral notes with an attractive purity to the fruit. Firmly structured with the tannins well integrated in the fruit. Freshness and length on the finish. Demure but should age. (JL) 13.1%

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Pavillon Rouge is soft, sensual and open-knit, all qualities that make it an absolute delight to taste today. A burst of red/purplish fruit, rose petal, leather and sweet spice gives the 2021 its upfront appeal. There's lovely energy and brightness underpinning it all. Soaring aromatic top notes add allure, making it impossible to resist a second taste. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022

Jane Anson

This has a mirabelle plum, raspberry and red cherry character, softly finessed with texture and depth, given extra complexity by curling floral aromatics. Classic balance, siky texure, although with a less generous and rounded feel to the tannins than the past few vintages of Pavillon Rouge. 36hl/h yield, with around 5% lost to frost but no mildew because treated (organically) throughout the season. 30% of overall production.
