1989 PAVILLON BLANC du Château Margaux 1989

1989 will be remembered as an exceptionally early and easy year in terms of viticulture. Exceptional conditions favored flowering, veraison and ripening. Regarding the harvest, they did not experience a single day of rain.
The 1989 vintage was a dream year, it is a great vintage in Bordeaux. This is one of the greatest vintages of Pavillon Blanc. Indeed, the Sauvignon grapes have reached this exceptional level of maturity allowing them to go beyond the vegetal aromas, emblematic of the variety. Pavillon Blanc 1989 du Château Margaux has undoubtedly reached full maturity and tastes remarkably well. It can be drunk now.

Acacia flowers and white nectarine on the noise, plus a touch of perfume. Golden color. Light body with a round, soft texture. Muted Sauvignon blanc fruit (cantaloupe and peach) with semicolon florals. Taught but not at all sharp. A barely detectable oxidation on the finish. Just a hint of toasted nuts.

For several centuries, this Premier Cru Classé has expressed to the highest degree the exceptional qualities of terroirs patiently brought together by several generations of owners. Maintained and harvested exclusively by hand with extreme care, the 78 hectares of vines (75% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet-Franc and Petit-Verdot) draw their richness very deeply from the soil. clayey-gravelly, particularly dense and thick.

Fermentation in oak vats, after which the wine is strictly selected, is followed by 18 to 24 months of aging in new oak barrels. A masterpiece among the Bordeaux wines, the best according to some, Château Margaux reveals finesse and opulence, depth and complexity on tasting, and develops a bouquet of rare elegance of rose, violet, black fruits, under -taut by tight tannins that require patient aging before blossoming. The château also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, and a dry white wine, Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux (100% Sauvignon Blanc).

Best vintages of Château Margaux are : 1900, 1928, 1953, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1989, 1990
