2017 Pavillon Blanc de Chateau Margaux, Bordeaux Blanc (6 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux Bordeaux AOC

Picked in late August, the 2017 Pavillon Blanc offers an enticing mélange of bright Sauvignon Blanc notes and textural depth, all with the energy that is such a signature of the Blanc. Citrus, orchard fruit, white flowers and crushed rocks are all laced together, but it is the wine's superb balance that stands out most.

The 2017 Pavillon Blanc was picked 27 to 31 August. It has a well defined bouquet, but for me less expressive than the previous vintage at the moment with white flowers, Nashi pear and a faint touch of orange rind. The palate is well balanced with a fresh entry that delivers pineapple, white peach and a dash of white pepper. There is impressive energy here, well balanced with a hint of apricot and praline towards the tender finish. Very fine.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Margaux has a spraying system to combat frost at the Pavillon Blanc vineyard, but they lost a bit of production, with yields finishing at 22 hectoliters per hectare. The nose of the 2017 Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux is a little reticent to begin, giving way to beautiful white peach, grapefruit and lemongrass notes plus hints of mandarin peel, honeysuckle, baking bread and just a waft of ginger. The medium to full-bodied palate is very crisp and super intense, laden with citrus and stone fruit layers, coupled with a lovely satiny texture and plenty of weight without feeling heavy, finishing with incredible length and a lingering mineral note.
