Bright ruby red in colour. Initial aromas of mint and vanilla with cassis notes developing. Medium weight palate with an absence of fruit flavours save a little cassis finishing with fine grained tannins. A little simple for the good vintage and the esteemed producer - Pavilion Rouge being the 2nd wine of Chateau Margaux. One of my greatest wine drinking experiences ever was a 1982 Chateau Margaux. This was a million miles away from that experience. I think I would need to drink the remaining 3 bottles in the next few years. In summary disappointing.

WNH event number 4. Perfect Pizza Pairing bottles. Not a bad bottle in the bunch!

This was a fantastic bottle with our pizza. A wonderful year in Bordeaux with a more approachable and fruit forward style. Not a ton of leather and smoke...more ripe black and red fruit. Cherry pipe tobacco, and rose petal and violets. No problem popping these now! All smiles,

Deep garnet red with a touch of ruby. Layered nose with cherries, a bit earthy, cedar and dark gravel. Medium tannins (7/10) and medium plus bodied. Power on the palate with dried cherries, forest floor, mushrooms and minerality. Long finish. Drink till 2030.

Earthy mustiness, floral hints. Light and smooth tannins for Bordeaux. Chalky after taste. Covered fruit. Great last and structure. I love it. Black pepper taste
