The nose of the Pavillon Blanc 2015 is very aromatic and very complex, it is round on the palate and the finish is supported by great freshness. Even if we know that this wine will gain from further aging, it is difficult to resist now.

The 2015 Pavillon Blanc is another terrific Bordeaux Blanc from this great vintage. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc aged in 25% new French oak (which is slightly less than normal), it boasts classic notes of caramelized limes, white grapefruit, and white flowers, medium to full-bodied richness, vibrant, racy acidity and blockbuster length on the finish. It's unquestionably one of the gem dry whites in the vintage.

This is very, very pure, with a beautiful beam of bright yellow apple, fennel and green melon flavors gilded by light acacia, chamomile, jasmine and verbena echoes. Long, rapier finish. Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2025. 833 cases made.

Ripe and creamy, this white wine from the Margaux vineyards is full of apple, grapefruit and tangy orange fruit. It also has a good structure with its touch of toast and spice. The wine is clean, clear, very pure and with great balance. Drink from 2020.

Coming from vines that are now over 40 years old, representing only one-third of the total production and, as always, produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2015 Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux was matured for eight months in barrels, 20% new. The nose simply sings of fresh peaches, pink grapefruit and almonds with touches of dried herbs, crushed stones, allspice and honeycomb plus a waft of elderflower. The medium-bodied palate reveals a lovely satiny texture, great intensity and a racy backbone to support the vibrant fruit, finishing long with some tropical notes coming through. Although it is delicious now, it is certainly closed compared to what it will be in a year or two and can easily cellar for 20 years or more.

The 2015 Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux has a clean, pure bouquet featuring subtle tropical notes of passion fruit and guava, oakier than some of its peers at the moment. The palate is well balanced with a pleasant fatness on the entry, orange pith and mango coming to the fore. The finish is simplistic but quite commercially savvy. This is a crowd-pleasing Pavillon Blanc that should give several years of drinking pleasure, though perhaps one to enjoy more in its flush of youth. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
