Pavillon Rouge 2023 Description

Pavillon Rouge 2023 boasts a splendid garnet-red color, a testament to meticulous parcel-by-parcel selection. On the nose, it reveals scents of fresh fruit and vanilla. The palate, perfectly ripe, is delicate and inviting. The suppleness of well-integrated tannins enhances the wine’s delicacy and finesse. Wonderfully controlled acidity highlights delicious aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant, while the finely toasted finish is remarkably long.

Chateau Margaux is an iconic name in Bordeaux winemaking, with a prestige and reputation that have long transcended borders. Known as “La Mothe de Margaux” as early as the 12th century, the estate’s high-quality wines were recognized in the early 15th century, thanks to the efforts of régisseur Berlon, who innovatively separated red grapes from white and identified the best parcels.

In 1784, this wine captivated Thomas Jefferson, the future president of the United States and then French ambassador. In the early 19th century, the château was demolished by its owner, the Marquis de la Colonilla Bertrand Douat, and rebuilt into the structure we know today, featuring an Ionic peristyle, a monumental staircase, and a classical façade.

Chateau Margaux achieved its pinnacle when it was ranked as a Ier Grand Cru Classé in 1855, a distinction it shares with only four other Bordeaux greats: Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Haut-Brion, Château Latour, and Château Mouton Rothschild, the latter since the single revision of the classification in 1973. The Margaux appellation was not established until 1954, inspired by the impeccable excellence of the eponymous Château.

Owned by the Greek Mentzelopoulos family since 1977, Château Margaux now oversees an 82-hectare vineyard, 70 of which are dedicated to red wine production. The vines, averaging 35 years of age, consist of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc.

The wines of Château Margaux are the result of a rigorous selection process, ensuring only the best of the crop is used. The wines are known for their full-bodied opulence, exceptional length, and unparalleled refinement.
