TASTING NOTES

"A very powerful and dense white with loads of dried lemons and cooked peaches. Full-bodied with chewy phenolic tension and texture. Extremely long. Lasts for minutes. Layered!" JamesSuckling.com

Rating: 97-98


"The 2018 Pavillon Blanc is made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc that was picked in August—there was no water stress on the vines at this stage. The wine has a pH of 3.1 and 13.5% alcohol. It leaps from the glass with exuberant green guava, fresh pineapple and apricot scents with hints of mandarin peel, honeysuckle and fresh ginger. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and very fresh with wonderful, intense tropical layers, finishing very exotic." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"The 2018 Pavillon Blanc is rich and beautifully layered, with a striking interplay of aromas, flavors and textures. Citrus peel, white flowers and orchard fruit give the 2018 lovely resonance from start to finish. Harvest was about a week earlier than normal, which is to say between August 27-31, before dehydration in the field became an issue. The 2018 captures the natural radiance of the year while retaining terrific freshness as well. In a word: sublime." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Subtle oak spice and mealy, creamy notes from the barrels but also beautifully fragrant citrus and blossom on the nose, making the palate all the more remarkable in its incredible fruit intensity. Amazing intensity and freshness at the same time. Concentration but with this salty aftertaste. Mouth-watering. Succulent and so full of pure, fragrant citrus, almost a touch of apricot. Really aromatic on the palate too. Both sweet-fruited and salty giving very good balance. Mealy, almost savoury on the final salty finish." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
