PAVILLON ROUGE 2015 – SECOND WINE OF CHATEAU MARGAUX
PAVILLON ROUGE 2015 – SECOND WINE OF CHATEAU MARGAUX from Vinatis UK
Pavillon Rouge has progressed significantly in recent years, taking advantage of warmer weather and improvements in working tools, to become one of the best second wines in Bordeaux. This vintage has only 23% of the harvest. Thanks to this rigour, the style of Pavillon Rouge is getting closer and closer to that of the Grand Vin. The Cabernet Sauvignon (74%) brings a dense structure, a full palate, a long finish supported by aromas of peppermint and sap. The Merlot (21%) wraps the wine in a silky and charming veil. Petit Verdot (4%) brings spicy aromas and Cabernet Franc (1%) completes the blend. With its structure, refinement and length, this vintage is probably the best Pavillon Rouge ever produced.
