The 2014 Pavillon Blanc boasts incredible textural depth and resonance, largely the result of a hot September that concentrated the grapes. Lemon oil, white flowers, mint and lime meld together in an unusually viscous, creamy Pavillon Blanc built on pure texture and a real sense of phenolic weight. This is a dazzling Pavillon Blanc that marries power and freshness.

The Pavillon Blanc de Margaux 2014 was elevated by a cool August that captured the acidity and the clement conditions in September. ?It has the same opulence as 2011 and the freshness of 2012, but there is less quantity,? remarked Paul Pontallier. It has a fragrant bouquet with scents of honeysuckle, orange blossom and a fresh sprig of mint. The palate is ripe and focused on the entry, a white Bordeaux underpinned by a fine line of acidity, just a dash of lemongrass emerging towards the finish and lending spice. There is an endearing sense of harmony here. Mon. Pontallier is right to enthuse about this Pavillon Blanc, one of the finest in recent years.

This is yet again a wonderful white with minerals, lemon rind, white pepper and stones. Even chalky. Peach stones, too. Full-bodied yet compacted and tight. Great length. Savory, salty and serious. James Suckling. April, 2015.

Very intense and pure on the nose. All here. This is very clean and fresh. A touch of cool fruit salad on the nose, and again in the mouth. Peaches, grapefruit. Real sherbet-like extract. As ever, it is hard to believe that this is 100% Sauvignon. Very very good. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
