- Tasting Notes
Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits’ 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux has a crisp and well defined bouquet of black dusky fruit, sandalwood, bay leaf and a touch of warm gravel. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and impressive structure. There is a linearity about this Pavillon Rouge, with a dash of white pepper towards the finish, as it clings to the mouth and says, I’m going to last longer than you think in bottle. This initially suggested a drinking window of around a decade, but now a decade on, it has other ideas.

Bright red-ruby. Very fresh aromas of cassis, raspberry, minerals, licorice and flowers. Supple and nicely fine-grained but a bit lean, with a faint herbal/peppery quality giving this moderately dense wine a dry edge. Finishes with a firm spicy quality and good length, but could use a bit more sweetness of fruit.

Sweet plum aromas, with hints of fresh herbs, follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Light but enjoyable. Drink now.
