Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux 98js 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"More opulent than the 2010, with plenty of honeysuckle, melon and orange rind-scented and flavored fruit, this medium-bodied 2012 reveals terrific acidity. It is a brilliant example of a fresh, well-delineated 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Chateau Margaux. It should drink well for 20-25 years as these wines have considerable longevity. ...91-93" WA 04/13 "Incredible clarity and freshness with minerals, lemons, chalk and steel. It’s so racy and exciting. Changes to white peaches and mangoes. Just flies at the end of the palate. Super subtle. Delicate yet agile and powerful. Pinpointed structure and flavors. It lasts for minutes on the palate. Just a hint of lemon rind and salt. A triumph. Better in 2018. But who can wait?..98" JS 02/15
