Marks and reviews
The harvest of the whites from chateau Margaux plots took place from September 3rd to September 8th. The summery weather allowed to harvest the Sauvignon grapes when they were perfectly ripe and concentrated, whereas the relative coolness of August enabled the grapes to retain all the acidity necessary for the balance of the wine and its ageing ability. The 2015 Pavillon Blanc is in line with the wines that chateau Margaux have been producing since 2011; they are just as concentrated but less rich in alcohol. Harvesting a little earlier and severity of selection has enabled Margaux to obtain such a result. The nose of the Pavillon Blanc 2015 is very aromatic and very complex, it is round on the palate and the finish is carried by the acidity. It is one of the great vintages of Pavillon Blanc.
