2020 Pavillon Blanc de Chateau Margaux, Margaux Pre-Arrival
Pre-Arrival · Anticipated Delivery this Fall
Winemaker Notes: The acidity of the grapes was the dominant factor in deciding when to harvest their white grapes. We began on August 24th and finished on September 1st. When we tasted the batches, it appeared that our decision was the right one, as the acidity contributes to giving the wine great aromatic freshness and a particular persistence. Pavillon Blanc 2020 is the result of a number of tastings during which the best batches were selected to make a subtle, pure and slender Pavillon Blanc.
As they did these tastings, they reflected with some emotion the fact that they are celebrating the centennial of the Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux, which succeeded the Château Margaux Vin Blanc de Sauvignon, produced since the 18th century.
Decanter - "Clear gunsmoke character with slate and graphite, also a ton of white peach, white pear, some sweet mango and a scrape of salinity on the finish.
