    Glorious aromas of freshly picked raspberries, with tiny hints of cream and minerals. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a long, long finish of berries and cherries. Super second wine from Margaux. Best Pavillon Rouge I have ever tasted. 20,525 cases made.

    Medium ruby. Perfumed, subtle aromas of dark berries, spices, cedar and lead pencil; unusually sophisticated for a second wine. Supple, dense and suave, with lovely layered texture and restrained sweetness. Very densely packed and serious for Pavillon Rouge, but with no loss of finesse. Finishes with chewy, ripe tannins and excellent length.

    Mid to dark crimson with a ruby rim. Complex, mellow nose and on the palate the tannins seem to have disappeared altogether. Medium weight, well mannered, but definitely ready to drink.

    One of the finest examples I have tasted, the 2000 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux exhibits supple tannin along with big, sweet, luscious black currant flavors intermixed with hints of cedar, spice box, and vanilla. Plump and fleshy, with low acidity, it will offer delicious drinking now and over the next 10-15 years. Don't miss it.

    Good but expect a littlemore for the hefty price due to the vintage expectation. Has very good and complex nose, looks nice on palate, on mouth nice acidity and but short in terms of depth and complexity along with somehow short finish, nnice tannins. drink now. tasted from magnum bottle.

    In decanter for 30 minutes. Purple. Pleasant nose: sweet blackcurrant, tobacco, liquorice, mint. Palate surprising with overwhelming acidity and subtle, moderate tannins. Sour. Short finish. A good wine, but, overall, a disappointment, lacking complexity - definitely beneath of what is expected of the pedigree. Drink now - won't become more refined.

    Pavilion Rouge is the second wine of Chateau Margaux and in great vintages can be a decided value. (I remember back in the late 80s buying scads of 82 Pavilion Rouge for a pittance from Safeway). Only 40% of the Chateau?s production made it in to the Grand Vin in 2000 so this wine benefited from production that in years past would have been blended into the primary cuv?e. Already displaying an attractive and accessible nose of cherries, licorice, and smoke with minty overtones, the wine shows moderately dark colors with just a hint of coloration in the legs. Round and fruity in the mouth with decent length. Light to moderate tannins with well-balanced acidity. Not surprisingly this wine is on a much faster evolutionary track than most 2000 Bordeaux.

    Sweet dark fruits and smooth and silk. This seems exceptional for a second wine. Do not miss this if you can get it. An incredible value.

    this is something that can be enjoyed now... let it sit slightly for around 30 mins and then the floral aromas will be coming out... definitely not as good as the 2000 Margaux... but at this price, it's unbeatable. Enjoy.

Chateau Margaux is one of the five First Growths ranked in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. The neo-Palladian style chateau was built in the 18th century by architect Louis Combes for the Marquis de la Colonilla. Chateau Margaux has been well regarded in history and stands among Thomas Jefferson's favorite chateaux. Since 1977, the estate has been directed by the Mentzelopoulos family with winemaking team director Paul Pontallier, cellar master Jean Grangerou and consulting oenologist Emile Peynaud. The vineyards are primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), with the balance composed of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. In addition to the chateau's grand vin, the estate produces a second label called Pavillon Rouge de Chateau Margaux and Pavillon Blanc de Chateau Margaux, a white made from Sauvignon Blanc. Chateau Margaux's finest vintages include 1900, 1928, 1953, 1961, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1990, 1996, 2000, 2003, and 2005.

Margaux is often considered the most "feminine" of the First Growths. It is sensuous with fine tannins that give it a sense of clarity. The wine has dark berry aromas such as boysenberry or blackberries. The bouquet is characterized by ripe black currants, spicy vanilla and violets. A strong minerality is often found in the lengthy finish.
