Pavillon Rouge 1988 possesses a classic balance, with a fine tannic structure and a lot of elegance. Ageing in bottle has given it the smoothness it lacked when it was young. It is ready to drink now, but it can also be kept without any risk.
After a very mild winter and a wet spring, June and the beginning of July were particularly rainy. Then, from mid-July onwards, until the end of September, hot and very dry weather set in. Despite a few light rain showers at the beginning of the harvest, the picking was carried out in excellent conditions. (The picking began 3rd October)
