    ROBERT PARKER - WINE ADVOCATE


    This is a strong vintage for Bordeaux’s dry white wines, probably as good or better than 2005. Crisp acidity combined with outstanding concentration and the fact that most of the white grapes were harvested before the rains began in mid-September resulted in an impressive group of wines.

    ROBERT PARKER - WINE ADVOCATE


    Produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, this superb dry, lemony white reveals hints of spring flowers, orange peel, crushed rocks, and a subtle touch of smoke. Medium-bodied with superb texture as well as purity, this is a dazzling example of white Bordeaux. Anticipated maturity: now-2020.

    NEAL MARTIN - WINE ADVOCATE


    The 2006 Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux has always been one of the pinnacle white releases from this First Growth and at ten years of age, I have no reason to change my mind. It has an exquisite bouquet of lemon curd, orange scents and a touch of praline that is very delineated and focused. The palate exhibits fine balance with hints of crème fraiche, almond and even a cheeky dab of marzipan. Funnily enough, it is difficult imagining that this is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and in fact, there is something almost Burgundy-like about this Pavillon Blanc (as I suggested in my barrel tasting note). Irrespective of origin, what it constitutes is a damn glorious white Bordeaux that comes highly recommended. So much so, I would drink this now rather than later. Tasted January 2016.
