The Pavillion Rouge 2003 is a monumental wine, richer in tannins than any Château Margaux produced over the last 40 years! This unusual power is happily balanced, as in the first wine, by a delicacy and smoothness, which almost managed to hide the impressive tannic structure.

Wine SpectatorAromas of blackberry and lightly toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a rich, fruity aftertaste of plum, berry and vanilla. All there. Solid wine. Second wine of Margaux. Best after 2011.

Wine EnthusiastThe second wine of Château Margaux is certainly as good as many crus bourgeois. This vintage is ripe and elegant. For fruit that is so ripe what is fascinating is the way the wine finishes with acidity and a great lift. Delicious in three to five years. Imported by Diageo Chateau & Estates.

Wine AdvocateAlso a stunning wine, the 2003 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux is a sleeper of the vintage. Much fresher and less evolved than I would expect a second wine to be from this vintage, it is a Margaux-like effort with a flowery character, good precision and freshness, red and black currant notes, and an attractive, medium-bodied, surprisingly concentrated mouthfeel. It is clearly one of the finest second wines made in this vintage. It can be consumed over the next 5-8 years.
