CHATEAU MARGAUX

12 April 2010 News

Pavillon Blanc, the 100% Sauvignon Blanc white of Château Margaux, is frequently rated at the pinnacle of white Bordeaux, and the 2009 is no different, earning the top spot in the Wine Spectator‘s coverage.  James Suckling’s review says it all:

Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux 2009
“Shows impressive aromas of lemon rind and papaya, with hints of cream. Full and very layered, with the density of a red wine. Long and flavorful, offering a pretty balance of ripe fruit and acidity like a grand cru Burgundy. The château says that they have pulled back the alcohol and given the wine a little more freshness and length. It worked.” 95-98 Wine Spectator
