Tasting Notes

This is a delicate, well-defined nose, less gregarious than their huge Pavillon Blanc of last year. As always, it smells as if there is Semillon in the blend. The palate is very well balanced with good nervosité with notes of lemon curd, apricot, crème brulee and pear. Good length and poise with a quasi-Burgundian like finish and tinned pineapple on the aftertaste.

Score: 90 - 92

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 08 April 2008

The white wine made by Château Margaux from 100% Sauvignon blanc. Fresh grapefruit and apple aromas with a hint of barley sugar and creaminess. Very mineral but super intense. Quite astonishing richness and verve. The alcohol may be 15.5% but this is barely felt at all, such is the combination of richness and freshness. Really alive on the very long finish. Very impressive. The Chateau say that this has more power and freshness than 2006.

Score: 93 - 96

This is superracy and stylish, with mineral, lemon, lime, pineapple and papaya. Full, yet balanced and fresh, crisp and long. Wonderful.

Score: 91 - 94
