Tasting Note:

This is the most concentrated Pavillon Rouge ever made, analytically highest in alcohol (14%) and tannin, and the closest in style to the Grand Vin. An even blend of 48% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with the remainder made up of Petit Verdot, it exhibits great power on the nose and through onto the palate. Very deep, smooth and elegant on the nose, with lots of raspberry and cherry fruit and a glycerol edge; very pure and quite tight on the palate, good concentration and a creamy texture, lush red fruit and gripping tannins. A rousing, wondrous glass.
