Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux

1979
For a long time, this wine had the "classic aromas" of Sauvignon, i.e. a little herbaceous. With time, the nose has become much more complex, and the wine has not lost its freshness. It is a perfect example of a wine improving through bottle age. To be enjoyed now.

Climate

The weather conditions were very similar to those in the 1978 vintage: a wet spring, a hot summer in July and cool in August; and a very fine end to the summer. Once again, the grapes just managed to reach a very good level of ripeness. (The picking began 4th October)
