Estate Notes

Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, 2004 is the excellent second wine of Château Margaux, and is in very good condition.

Corinne Mentzelopoulos owns and manages Margaux, although Corinne and her team prefer to feel that Margaux leads them. In truth, Corinne and her mother and father before her have led Margaux out of the doldrums both spiritually and in terms of quality, and there seems to be a remarkable team ethic and bond from the vineyard workers right through to the management team. Despite the estate's premier cru status, it has a wonderful family feel, lacking pretension and snobbery, and is renowned for its seductive silky wines.

"Margaux’s second wine, the 2004 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux, may turn out to be outstanding. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by fleshy notes of black currants, cherries, smoke, earth, and spring flowers. Lovely, ripe, and opulent..." Robert Parker

"...a beautiful wine that has balance and effortless class - a wonderfully poised Pavillon Rouge. 60% new oak has lent it some toasted almond and tarry notes. It represents just 26% of the harvest, making this the smallest ever percentage of the crop to make it into the second wine." Decanter Magazine

"Sexy aromas of currant, black cherry, licorice, flowers, toffee, menthol and chocolatey oak. Juicy, pure and fairly tightly wound, with lovely acidity giving a briskness to the flavors. Finishes with good definition and grip, and a slight dry edge." Stephen Tanzer
