Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux 2016 – Bordeaux

The nose is fruity, fresh, elegant and offers a very fine unctuosity as well as fat (just what is needed). It reveals notes of ripe lemon, ripe white peach and pear associate with fine hints of mandarine as well as discreet hints of crunchy pineapple/fresh litchee. The palate is fruity, juicy, elegante, minerale, beautifully built/frame and offers a beautiful definition, a fine acidulous frame (in the background), fat, a very fine unctuosity as well as a good guideline. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, ripe mandarine and more slightly ripe grapefruit associated with touches of juicy/crunchy pear, juicy/crunchy litchee, discreet hints of flowers, zests as well as a very discreet hint of toasted/vanilla and ripe almond (in the background). Good length.
