Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux 2016RM1,192.0 Margaux’s second wine is made from a serious selection process that takes place at this First Growth Chateau. There is also a third wine called Margaux de Margaux (that is not sold En Primeur) and a fourth wine that is sold off in bulk. This severe selection means that the grand vin rarely represents more than 35% of production with Pavillon Rouge now only another 25%. This is half the production level of a decade ago. 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot in 2016, representing 26% of the harvest. This is a very high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon for Pavillon Rouge, bringing it closer to the Grand Vin in style. This shows in the form of pure cassis and violets, with an elegant black-fruited nose. The palate is silky with light, ripe tannins offering approachability on the palate. more about intensity than weight, with lots of blossoming fruit bringin elegance and poise.

The estate’s winemaking history dates at least as far back as the 16th century, although it wasn’t until the 1700s that it began to earn its elite status. The 1771 vintage was the very first “claret” or red Bordeaux wine to feature in a Christie’s catalogue. The elegant neo-Palladian chateau that graces Chateau Margaux’s labels was built in the early 1800s by the Marquis de la Colonilla who was the first to own the estate after its confiscation during the French revolution. The design earned the chateau the nickname of the “Versailles of the Medoc” and many years later it was the charming ionic columns that caught the eye of Andre Mentzelopoulos, reminding him of his Greek homeland.
