Showing the elegance and refinement of its first-growth namesake, this superb wine is soft and velvety with the classic Margaux fragrance and finesse.
This second wine of Château Margaux was introduced in 1908 and now represents 50% of the overall estate production. Generally selected from vats and barrels of a lesser caliber than the "Grand Vin," it is typically made from the younger vines.
|Wine maker notes
|Time-honored techniques still prevail here. Grapes are manually harvested and sorted. The wine is fermented in oak vats and aged in Tronçais oak barrels as for the first wine. In general, though, Pavillon Rouge is bottled three to four months earlier than Château Margaux.
|75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
Proportions vary slightly according to the vintage.
