91Vinous / IWC

Initially a bit brooding, the 2012 becomes more finessed with time in the glass. Sweet floral and minty notes add freshness on the finish. The tannins are silky and polished throughout.

91James Suckling

A gorgeous red now with chocolate, berry and light mineral character. Full body, round and velvety tannins. So drinkable now and yummy. A blend of 63% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot, 1% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot.

90+ Robert M. Parker Jr.

...moderate tannin and medium body. This is a Pavillon Rouge that should admirably stand the test of time for 15-20 years. Its impressively long finish adds to its appeal and value.

90Wine Spectator

Very stylish, with a caressing feel to the steeped plum, blackberry and raspberry fruit, lined with subtle black tea and alder notes. The long, graceful finish has lovely mouthfeel.

17.5Jancis Robinson

High toned. Really coats the palate in the most seductive way. Fully ripe and utterly hedonistic but not sweet. Layers of interest.

Margaux is one of Bordeaux’s most famous appellations and also one of its largest, with about 3,400 acres of vineyards. Located on the Left Bank of the Gironde River, Margaux has the greatest number of classified-growth châteaux (or crus classé) according to the 1855 classification. There are twenty-one crus classé, including the most famous estate, the first growth Château Margaux. The Margaux appellation includes vineyards around the village of Margaux and the villages of Arsac, Cantenac, d’Issan, Labarde and Soussans. Wines from the best Margaux châteaux and vintages are prized for their perfumey fragrance and elegant, silky mouthfeel. Margaux wines are predominately Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
