No Merlot in the grand vin for the first time ever. This is more reticent than the Pavillon Rouge, though there is some clear depth and power hiding underneath. A hint of cream is followed by soft, focussed Margaux fruit in the mouth. And the Margaux class shows. There is density here and a weight and depth of fruit. Power and elegance. The class of the terroir is clear. Not the knockout punch of a 2009 or 2010 but this is very, very impressive. Serious wine and there is a Burgundian edge to it. Lovely. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2014.
