Red Bordeaux blends tend to be complex, rich, deep flavored wines with dark fruit notes and a relatively high tannic structure. The blends will contain Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.
The quality of Pavillon Rouge has become very close to that of the first wine because all the plots involved contributed to the blending of Château Margaux not so long ago. Of course there isn't the same complexity, the same depth, the same "magic" but the flavours are close and the balance in the mouth leads to the same subtle senses of power and softness. In general it is ready to drink a little earlier whilst retaining an excellent potential to age largely beyond 30 or 40 years.">
