Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux

The very fine balance and charm of the first wine can be found in the Pavillon Rouge, with less complexity, length and density. It has an appealing fruit character, so silky on the palate, it would be a shame to not start drinking it now, but it will continue to age. (October 2018)



After an early flowering, the summer was hot and sunny, with isolated rainy spells: optimal conditions to the ripening of the grapes, but also to the onset of downy mildew. From 20th August to 10th September, the very dry weather brought the ripening and the concentration of the grapes to exceptional levels; then heavy rains came until the end of September. (The picking began on 22nd September)
