2014 is linked, no doubt, to a remarkable acidity level because of the cool month of August. In fact, the combination of a warm September following a cold August, or vice versa in 2013, allows for both a good level of maturity, and the preservation of a high acidity level. These two features are absolutely necessary for the success of a great white wine. For us 2014 was also the first opportunity to try out the vinification equipment in our new cellar, designed by Norman Foster. It has been years now that we have been refining the minutest details and dreaming of the possibilities available to us… the result is everything we had hoped for because we had never before been able to go so far into the precision of the selection. So the 2014 Pavillon Blanc is an excellent vintage, but there has never before been so little.

As with the 2015, the 2014 Pavillon Blanc is a stunning wine, and I actually prefer it to the 2015 at the moment. From 100% Sauvignon Blanc brought up mostly in barrel, this beauty offers an exotic, taut, racy style as well as loads of lime peel, Meyer lemon, and orange blossom, with a building minerality and liquid rock-like character coming through with time in the glass. Vibrant, concentrated, and beautifully balanced, you can safely drink bottles over the coming 4-5 years or cellar for a decade more.

Very chiseled in feel, this glistens with verbena and tarragon notes, followed by lemon pith and yellow apple core flavors. A zing of fleur de sel drives the talc-dusted finish. A wine of rapier cut and terrific length. Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2026. 9,583 cases made.

The 2014 Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux has quite an intense bouquet with aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom, just as it showed out of barrel. It feels tightly wound, just like its red counterparts, and will benefit from a couple of years in bottle. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry-this is where all the action is. Lively and vivacious, it doles out enticing notes of dried apricot, pineapple, white peach and fennel, fanning out with abandonment on the persistent finish. What a great Pavillon Blanc! This comes recommended.

With swathes of delicious herbal and green Sauvignon Blanc fruit just delicately underpinned by the wood aging, this is a wine that is rich while remaining so crisp. It is the tangy grapefruit and crisp texture that will allow this wine to age. Drink from 2020.

The 2014 Pavillon Blanc de Château Margaux is just a bit anonymous on the nose, despite encouragement. The palate is sharp on the entry, very edgy and sharp, verging on sour lemon mixed with lime and peach towards the finish. This is one of the few Bordeaux dry whites that improved with aeration and I ended up giving a higher score. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.
