94-95 JS / 94+ WI / 92-94 JD / 93DE / 91-93 WA / 92 AG / 92 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 bright and beautifully focused. A slender, vibrant Pavillon Rouge, the 2021 impresses with energy more than volume. Bright acids lift a core of red plum fruit, blood orange, cinnamon and rose petal. Saline notes extend the finish. Today, the 2021 is a bit clenched, but that should not be an issue in a few years' time.. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The 2021 Pavillon Rouge showed well from barrel. Now, in bottle since late June, it has a gorgeous, very pure, almost Burgundy-like bouquet that blossoms in the glass: raspberry, blackberry and crushed violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with very succulent tannins, fine acidity, gentle grip and a disarmingly minerally, fresh finish. What a delightful Pavillon. - Neal Martin, 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
