Tasting Notes and Scores

94-96

Bordeaux Index

The exceptional second wine of the famous Chateau Margaux. Very attractive perfume, very Margaux - blackcurrant, plum and that violet note. Very fine, firm tannins, sweet-edged, supple and very pretty. Gorgeous perfume in the mouth, very linear and precise. A winner. Best ever? - April 2017

91-93

Neal Martin

The 2016 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux contains the highest proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon ever at 84%, with 13% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, representing 26% of the total harvest. Matured in 50-60% new oak, it has a very pure redcurrant and cranberry scented bouquet with a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin on the entry, thanks to the high percentage of Cabernet, and it is saline in the mouth with a pinch of white pepper towards the finish. It will need three or four years in bottle. - Wine Advocate #230, April 2017

94-95

James Suckling

Very concentrated and tannic Pavillon Rouge. Muscular. Full body and lots of intense fruit. Four-square. - March 2017

Jancis Robinson

Quite bright cherry red rather than deep crimson. Great quality sandy tannins. Really zesty. But light and very aérien. Really lifted. Drink 2022-2032. - jancisrobinson.com, April 2017

Antonio Galloni

Margaux's 2016 Pavillon Rouge is a gorgeous, precise wine that will offer plenty of drinking pleasure right out of the gate. Bright red cherry fruit, sweet tobacco and dried herbs are all laced together in this finely-knit, inviting wine. Hints of blood orange and mint add an attractive upper register. In 2016, Pavillon Rouge stands out for its persistence and impeccable balance. - vinous.com, January 2019

Jeb Dunnuck

The second wine of Château Margaux is the 2016 Pavillon Rouge, a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot brought up in 60% new barrels. It too is incredibly classic, elegant, and finesse-driven, with textbook Margaux aromatics of cassis, ripe cherries, and spring flower, medium body, subtle background oak, and lively acidity. It has real class and is capable of 2-3 decades of longevity. - jebdunnuck.com, February 2019

Decanter

This has softened and deepened over the 18 months of ageing yet still has a touch of austerity and will take a few years to settle down. It's not as plump or generous as the 2015, but it's a beautiful wine that has balance and effortless class - a wonderfully poised Pavillon Rouge. 60% new oak has lent it some toasted almond and tarry notes. It represents just 26% of the harvest, making this the smallest ever percentage of the crop to make it into the second wine. - decanter.com, Jane Anson, October 2018
