Selection of our wines at the point of blending remains strict, with only a third of the harvest going into Pavillon Blanc 2016 The aromas of this wine are complex and very fine. The entry on the palate is really round, pleasant, the prelude to a long and fresh finish, both mineral and fruity. It fits perfectly with the lineage of the latest vintages, perhaps even presenting a little more richness on the palate. It is difficult to resist today, but will still gain in complexity in the years to come.

Features bracing hints of lemon pith, chalk, thyme and fleur de sel, but leans toward the plumper side in the end, with delicious shortbread and yellow apple notes stretching out through the finish. Shows remarkable purity and serious length. Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2028. 833 cases made.

The 2016 Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux features fresh grapefruit, white peaches and lemon juice scents springing from the glass, followed by lime leaves, wet pebbles and elderflower plus a touch of honeysuckle. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and fresh with loads of vivacity and a long, mineral-laced finish.

Fully ripe with herbal flavors and a crisp texture, this wine shows the richness that come out of whites in the Médoc. It has a salty edge along with some minerality that gives this rich wine its texture. Drink from 2021.

Always based on Sauvignon Blanc and brought up in 20% new French oak, the 2016 Pavillon Blanc shows a racy, reductive style that slowly opens up in the glass and shows more and more richness. Beautiful notes of crushed citrus, tart peach, and bright minerality all emerge from this medium-bodied, concentrated white that has high yet integrated acidity, flawless balance, and a great finish. It's hard to resist, yet I suspect it will keep for decades.

The 2016 Pavillon Blanc de Château Margaux, which was bottled in May, has a beguiling bouquet of Golden Delicious apple, Williams pear and light crushed stone aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a taut line of acidity (in fact, the pH is 3.10 in this vintage) - citrus- fresh with impressive tension. A live-wire Pavillon Blanc with great sustain on the rich finish and a tang of ginger on the aftertaste. Superb.
