Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux

One of the greatest vintages of Pavillon Blanc! Never before have the grapes achieved such a high degree of sugar, and in general, such concentration. This surprising result is certainly due to the very unique climatic conditions that prevailed at the end of the summer, both very dry and cool with a persistent north wind. The Pavillon Blanc 1996 is a particularly powerful and concentrated wine with amazing length on the palate. Today is remarkable for its freshness and complexity; We recommend drinking it because it is so impressive. (October 2018)



After a very quick flowering, the summer was unsettled, with alternating periods of hot and cool weather and stormy showers, though less heavy in the Médoc than on the right bank. As from the 1st September, cool and very dry weather set in for three weeks. It then rained and fine weather returned for the harvesting of the Cabernets. (The picking began on 23rd September)
