Château Margaux is one of the five 1er Cru Classé properties. In 1978 Andre Mentzelopoulos bought the domaine and two years later his daughter Corine, who now owns the estate, recruited Paul Pontallier to oversee the production. With 82 hectares under vine, the quality of their wines has been consistently excellent over the past 3 decades.
Pavillon Rouge, their second wine, has an unctuous nose of plum and black cherry aromas with notes of sandal wood, dry fruits and ginger. Fully matured it is harmonious and shows great complexity.
The Pavillon Rouge 2006 is a powerful wine, full of flavour, with a fresh, firm finish, perhaps a little austere today, but whose richness and balance guarantee superb development in the years to come.- Winemaker's notes
