Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux

A lot of finesse and distinction in this bottle. To be opened and enjoyed now.

Climate

The four previous years had been late harvests; 1981 then, was the return to a classic harvesting date. The flowering went quickly and evenly, August was very hot and dry, and after a few rain showers in September, the weather was very good for the whole of the harvest, which began on 1st October.
