We remember this wine being of rather good quality, but the last bottle tasted in 2011 was missing some charm with tannins and acidity that dominated the wine a bit too much. This is the vintage where the second wine of Château Margaux became "Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux".
The cellar master wrote, "the frosts on 21st and 26th April together with the eudemis moths are the reason for the small crop size." It was very hot during the harvest. (The picking began 23rd September)
