Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux

Marked by fairly significant bottle variation, the Pavillon Blanc 1990 can also be remarkably fresh and complex, reminiscent of the wonderful 1989. Drink now (October 2018)



After a mild winter, the flowering was very early but quite long and uneven. As in 1989, the summer was exceptionally hot and so dry that at the end of August the young vines were really suffering from lack of water. The two rainy intervals in September were very beneficial to the final ripening of the grapes, which were harvested in very fine weather. (The picking began on 17th September)
