Description

White Wine by Chateau Margaux from Bordeaux, France. As everyone knows, the harvest date influences a wine’s aromatic and structural profile. In order to select the right time to harvest, we pay a lot of attention to the current physiological criteria. In 2018, considering the relatively high water stress in our Virefougasse vineyards and long periods of sunshine, acidity was the key parameter in our decision. Our aim is to add freshness to our Pavillon Blanc and thus give it every chance to age well over time. The sun, combined with low yields, resulted in satisfactory grape sugar levels which developed pleasant and complex aromas. We therefore began the harvest early which took place from the 27th to 31st of August. Although our aim remains to choose the best batches from our vineyard selections, tasting revealed greater homogeneity, and we were able to use a higher proportion of batches than for previous vintages with almost half of the harvest making up the Pavillon Blanc 2018. This vintage, for which the weather conditions seemed less favourable to the production of fine white wines than in 2017, maintains our rigorous standards and reflects the style of the white wines we have been producing for nearly a decade.
