Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux

The dilution caused by the heavy rain during the harvest affected the grapes that were already very ripe due to the very favourable weather during August.

The 1993 Pavillon Rouge is quite light, but fine and well balanced with a slightly vegetal note which is slowly fading as the wine ages in bottle. It is not at the level of recent vintages of Pavillon Rouge, however and will probably not improve with further ageing. (October 2018)



After an earlier than normal bud-break, the weather conditions were very favourable for the flowering, which was particularly fast and even. July was very dry but cool ; August was very hot and dry. On 10th September, the quality potential was remarkable. Unfortunately, the harvest was very rainy. (The picking began on 19th September)
