2006 Chateau Paveil De Luze Margaux

2006 Chateau Paveil De Luze Margaux

I first had the pleasure of this wine last summer while dining at Auberge de la Reine Blance in Paris. I don’t speak (or read) French very well, so I wasn’t a hundred percent sure what I had ordered for dinner, but I knew that at least I could order a bottle of wine. After all, French wine reads the same where ever you are!  I ordered the 2007 Paveil De Luze, and fell in love on first sip!

This wine has a gorgeous garnet color almost gem like. The soft essence of dried strawberries and a hint of clove are in perfect harmony with the mild tannins and provide an elegant finish for this lovely wine.

Upon returning from Paris, I set out to find this wine here in the US, and can happily report that the 2006 vintage is available! For 150 years the heirs of Baron Alfred de Luze have been making elegant Margaux wines. If you are looking for a sophisticated wine with refined structure to accompany your dinning table, seek this wine out. Cheers!
