Tasting Note:

We were saddened to hear of the death of Paul Pontallier just before the primeur tastings. He worked tirelessly for over thirty years for Chateau Margaux, to promote and improve the wines. Although his death was untimely, 2015 will be remembered fondly by those who knew him as his last vintage. It is a vintage that is befitting of the great man, a vintage of depth, classicism, class and refinement. A draconian selection resulted in a Pavillon Rouge that accounts for only 23% of the production. Fashioned from 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, there is such a floral beauty to the bouquet: lilacs, glorious sweet plum and cherry fruit. There is phenomenal texture and poise, quite brilliant. This is such an exquisitely constructed, seamless, bright and stylish Pavillon Rouge, where the fresh aromatic fruit harmoniously flows over the palate from beginning to its very fine and long end. One doesn't feel the hand of the winemaker at all. Totally beautiful!
