94-95 JS / 94+ WI / 92-94 JD / 93DE / 91-93 WA / 91-93 VM / 92 JA

A nicely rounded young red with fine tannins that are polished and poised. Medium body with a solid center-palate and a creamy finish. Shows wonderful ripeness and beauty. 73% cabernet sauvignon, 18% merlot, 5% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc. - James Suckling

Made from 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Pavillon Rouge is deep garnet-purple colored. It springs forth with vibrant black and red cherries, mulberries, and cassis notes, plus suggestions of menthol, spice cake, and cardamom. Medium-bodied, it is elegant and fine with a racy backbone and loads of mineral sparks, finishing long and lively. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

The second wine of the estate, the 2021 Pavillon Rouge is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon yet includes 18% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc. With a pH of 3.68 and an IPT of 74, it's a serious, age-worthy second wine offering medium-bodied aromas and flavors of cassis, graphite, and smoked tobacco. It's beautifully balanced, with good mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. It's in the running for the top second wine in the vintage. - Jeb Dunnuck

Soft rose-touched blackcurrants, really quite delicate and pretty yet also expressive, the aromas clearly discernible in the glass with a vivid pink-purple rim. So smooth and quite sensuous, you get the crushed velvet texture and thrashing acidity straight away, giving a round mouth, with these spikes of piquancy from the Petit Verdot. Really quite perfumed too. Vibrant with an excellent aromatic display and so much freshness. It’s on the tightrope - balancing the austerity and the plushness, the richness and the delicacy, the acidity and the structure. Tastes young and sparky, like a racing car ready to go, all energetic and buzzed. A great second wine. 4% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

Aromas of plums, raspberries and sweet spices introduce the 2021 Pavillon Rouge, a medium to full-bodied, velvety and vibrant wine that's impressively rich and mouthfilling, revealing a deep core of fruit framed by powdery tannins and lively acids, concluding with a long, saline finish. The blend is 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, and Philippe Bascaules observes that parcels planted 20 years ago and destined for the grand vin when they're a bit older are increasingly making the cut for Pavillon Rouge. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

The 2021 Pavillon Rouge is soft, sensual and open-knit, all qualities that make it an absolute delight to taste today. A burst of red/purplish fruit, rose petal, leather and sweet spice gives the 2021 its upfront appeal. There's lovely energy and brightness underpinning it all. Soaring aromatic top notes add allure, making it impossible to resist a second taste. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

This has a mirabelle plum, raspberry and red cherry character, softly finessed with texture and depth, given extra complexity by curling floral aromatics. Classic balance, siky texure, although with a less generous and rounded feel to the tannins than the past few vintages of Pavillon Rouge. 36hl/h yield, with around 5% lost to frost but no mildew because treated (organically) throughout the season. 30% of overall production. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
