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.

(06-2017) 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.
(03-2001) 100% Sauvignon blanc. Oaky, ripe attractive nose; medium-dry, assertive, delicious.
