88-91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004

Bright red-ruby. Pure aromas of raspberry, violet and minerals. Suave and supple but classically dry, with an enticing floral character throughout. Very stylish, smooth wine, with tannins nicely buffered by berry fruit.

2003 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux $80 I hav heard not-so-great reviews about this 2nd label of Margaux, (in any vintage), thus I hav been hesitant to even try it, even with lowered expectations. Well, I bought 6 of these and I am supremely glad that I did! This wine was a wonderful surprise to me. I had it with a beef London Broil slow-baked with garlic, peppercorns and a mass of onion. (And I mean a MASS of onion) you could hardly get to any gravy..because of the onion. At 1/4 of the price of a decent vintage of their 1st label, this is infinitely wonderful with a hearty meal and even smoother than the reviews. Held it's own with beef and chicken. Full-bodied and earns the rather decent reviews this vintage was deservedly given. Not a thing wrong with this robust bottle and I will be ordering more of this vintage if it's still at the same price. Tanzer gave this one a 92 but I would give it 94 or possibly 95, it was that well balanced. For the price, this one was a real winner for me!
