You could easily mistake the 2022 Pavillon Rouge De Margaux for the Grand Vin here and truth be told I wouldn?t be surprised to see this actually evolve better than some of the Grand Vins from just over 10-15 years ago. A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon 24% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot (the second wine got all the Petit Verdot in 2022) it offers a deep medium to full-bodied seamless profile as well as solid framboise darker raspberry currants sandalwood and spice aromatics silky tannins and outstanding length. The purity and precision paired with this level of
Rich and dense with lots of fruit and juiciness. Redcurrants black berries strawberries and orange peel on the nose. Full and layered with fine velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Big presence.
The 2022 Pavillon Rouge which represents 32% of the production this year has a highly perfumed nose with wilted violets chaperoning the copious black fruit. Wonderful definition. The palate is medium-bodied with fine boned tannins. Silky smooth and sensual with a mineral-driven finish this sashays along in style. One of the few 2022's whose barrel sample is so seductive I could have eloped with it there and then. 14.8% alcohol.
