2002 was a poor year for Merlot grapes, but remarkably good for Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This is a bold wine at its peak, and should be drunk soon.

Information About Chateau Margaux

Since the end of the seventeenth century the Chateau Margaux estate has occupied 265 hectares in the Medoc, a third of which are still dedicated to growing vines. This wine estate carries a vast amount of prestige from being rated as a ‘first growth’ in the 1855 classification of the Medoc. The chateau itself has been nicknamed the ‘Versailles of the Medoc” for its neo-Palladian architecture.

The soils of the estate are well suited to the growing of Cabernet Sauvignon and thus it makes up 75% of the plantings. 20% is planted to Merlot with the remainder being Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. A small quantity of Sauvignon Blanc is also planted for the estate’s Pavillon Blanc white.

Not nearly as concentrated, although elegant, in a much lighter style than the 2003, with notes of cedar, herbs, red and black currants as well as licorice, this is a medium-bodied, more streamlined and austere Pavillon Rouge to drink over the next decade.

Rating : 87/100

Deep crimson. Very fragrant. Very flattering. Quite elevated acidity but more charming than most Médocs. Refreshing drinking relatively early. Quite ripe flavours. Tannins not especially marked. Clean, dry finish. Great purity.

Rating : 16.5/20

It might have been feared that the Pavillon Rouge 2002 would be affected by the lower quality of the Merlot grapes compared with the Cabernet Sauvignon. It turned out not to be the case, thanks to the third wine, which enabled us to discard the less good batches of Merlot.

It is a classic, quite powerful wine, with some austerity which will repay laying down a few years before drinking.
