Château Margaux launches new white wine

Château Margaux has been producing an exceptional white since the early 18th century, known since 1920 as Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux. In January this year, the estate took the unprecedented step of launching another white wine, only their fifth to be launched in five centuries, starting with the 2022 vintage, called appropriately, Pavillon Blanc Second Vin

The estate makes a very strict selection of plots of white grapes following detailed analysis and understanding of different soils. Each plot is harvested at perfect ripeness, and the winemaking and ageing is adapted according to the grapes quality. As Pavillon Blanc Second Vin Pavillon Blanc Second Vin with its precursor, the second selection was of such high quality that the estate was able to produce Pavillon Blanc Second Vin with 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Only 8,000 bottles of Pavillon Blanc Second Vin were produced for its first vintage in 2022, with yields that were among the lowest in the estate’s history due to the challenging conditions of the vintage.

Pavillon Blanc Second Vin 2022 has a complex and floral nose leading to a creamy palate balanced by a fresh, saline finish. While it can be drunk when young, it has the potential to age for at least two decades. Distributed by the wine merchants of La place de Bordeaux and available from the best retailers and specialised websites, the wine costs £285 in bond for a case of three bottles.
