WTN: 2011 Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux

2011 Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux

Refreshing scent of lemon and white grapefruit. Precise and focused, elegant and light on its feet. Somehow introverted like a young ballerina who isn't sure yet of her talents.

Sauvignon Blanc vinified in barriques... :shock:

For so much money, you could have bought a CSH, you know! :wink:

Dear Fredrik, the barriques must have been sensational though :wink:
Money didn't matter, I was kindly invited to a free tasting by Château Margaux's sales director. Can't really complain :wink:

Thank God it was free. Sauvignon Blanc - yuck.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

I agree - while I have tasted many adequate bottles of Pavillon Banc (and rouge) I have never had an exceptional one, nor one that couldn't be equalled for less money elsewhere.

Example - Pavillon Blanc at twice or more the price, or....Smith Haut Lafite, de Fieuzal etc. No contest.
