"Blended of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux has a lovely open and expressive spicy nose of cinnamon and cloves with a core of red currant jelly, kirsch and crushed blackberries plus touches of tobacco and new leather. The palate is medium-bodied with great mid-palate intensity and plenty of red and black fruit layers, finishing on an uplifting perfumed note." Lisa Perotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate, Rating: 91-93
"A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Pavillon Rouge is terrific, with lots of cassis and black raspberry fruit as well as notes of spice box, flowery incense, and graphite aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, and silky on the palate, it has plenty of tannins as well as length and would pass for a top wine at most estates. Give it 2-4 years if you can, and it will offer lots of pleasure over the following 10-15 years (and probably longer)." - Jeb Dunnuck, Jebbdunnuck.com, Rating: 2022-2037
