Like the first wine, Pavillon Rouge 1985 is superb : elegant, balanced, fleshy, complex -so good to drink ! On the palate, it is both soft and long -a real treat… To be enjoyed now, but there is no rush.
After a quite cool and late start to the growing season, this vintage was influenced by very advantageous ripening and harvesting conditions, especially during the months of September and October, which were very hot and dry. The leaves on the vines refused to fall until late into November. This Indian summer will be remembered a long time. (The picking began on 26th September)
