Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Marguax 2009
18 Dec 2019
I have been drinking white burgundies for the past two years and hardly had a sip of any Bordeaux whites, as my biggest problem with Bordeaux whites is the lack of acidity and the lack of sophistication. However, I must confess this was an unfounded bias, definitely due to too much white burgundies influence and brainwash. Bouquet was definitive Bordeaux, with loads of butter (definitely due to oak influence) and a very faint floral note. As expected, there wasn’t much acidity in the body, in fact too low to even call a white. BUT, the extraordinary fruits more than made up the lack of acidity, extremely enjoyable fruits and pleasurable wine, made the white burgundy fruits paled right next to this gem!
