Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux

This was a difficult vintage for Pavillon Blanc, which never really had much charm; however its power and concentration have enabled it to age with some fortune. It nevertheless should be drunk immediately. (October 2018)



After a quite cool and late start to the growing season, this vintage was influenced by very advantageous ripening and harvesting conditions, especially during the months of September and October, which were very hot and dry. The leaves on the vines refused to fall until late into November. This Indian summer will be remembered a long time. (The picking began on 26th September)
