Margaux's 2015 Pavillon Blanc is superb. Remarkably pure and crystalline, especially for the year, the Pavillon Blanc proves to be utterly irresistible. Lemon peel, white flowers, crushed rocks, mint and a hint of reduction develop in the glass, but it is the wine's energy that is most alluring. The intensely saline, nuanced finish only reinforces the impression of translucent purity. Readers who own the 2015 are going to be thrilled, as it is a truly magical wine. 

The 2015 Pavillon Blanc is another terrific Bordeaux Blanc from this great vintage. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc aged in 25% new French oak (which is slightly less than normal), it boasts classic notes of caramelized limes, white grapefruit, and white flowers, medium to full-bodied richness, vibrant, racy acidity and blockbuster length on the finish. It’s unquestionably one of the gem dry whites in the vintage. - Jeb Dunnuck

This is very, very pure, with a beautiful beam of bright yellow apple, fennel and green melon flavors gilded by light acacia, chamomile, jasmine and verbena echoes. Long, rapier finish. Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2025. 833 cases made. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Coming from vines that are now over 40 years old, representing only one-third of the total production and, as always, produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2015 Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux was matured for eight months in barrels, 20% new. The nose simply sings of fresh peaches, pink grapefruit and almonds with touches of dried herbs, crushed stones, allspice and honeycomb plus a waft of elderflower. The medium-bodied palate reveals a lovely satiny texture, great intensity and a racy backbone to support the vibrant fruit, finishing long with some tropical notes coming through. Although it is delicious now, it is certainly closed compared to what it will be in a year or two and can easily cellar for 20 years or more. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

The 2015 Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux has a perfumed bouquet with lemon curd, almond paste and light white flower scents that gently unfold in the glass. It does not quite possess the definition and tautness of the best Pavillon Blancs from the estate. The palate is well balanced with a crisp, fresh lime and white peach entry. This is a pretty Pavillon Blanc instead of a sophisticated and complex one, but I appreciate the fullness in the mouth and the subtle spicy tincture on the finish. You could actually broach this now or drink over the next 6 or 7 years. Anticipated maturity: 2019 - 2027. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

100% Sauvignon from vines more than 40 years old. 10,000 bottles from 12 ha. 20% new oak and big 400-litre casks. Extremely rich nose. Racy and lively with a green streak. Deliberately more acidity than in the old days. Just finishes a little more suddenly than I expected. - Jancis Robinson
