The 2017, comprising 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, is an outstanding, medium to fuller-bodied drop that is elegant and silky on the palate. The presence of abundant tannins provide great length, complimenting the marked black raspberry fruit, cassis, spice, flower flavours, and graphite aromatics. This will cellar well for 10-15 years.
The quality of tannins in the Pavillon Rouge is really beautiful with extremely fine grain. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and silky. Racy and extended on the palate. Really pretty. Strength with elegance.
This wine is crisp, full of black currants and with attractive acidity as well as a firm texture. It is cool and classic, with a light touch of wood and tannin. It's likely to be ready from 2023.
