Bordeaux Blanc

Pavillon du Lac

The vintage
The 2020 vintage was capricious, with a very mild winter that favoured early budburst. Spring was very damp and rainy, causing poor fruit set for some grape varieties and significant pressure from downy mildew. During the summer, a heatwave blocked ripening of the berries, particularly on the Left Bank with its gravelly and well-drained soils. The Right Bank was favoured, due to the water retention of its clay soils. The 2020 harvest was one of the earliest on record, starting on 24 August for the whites. The difficult vintage conditions gave our technicians a hard time, but their professionalism and patience made it possible to produce an aromatic and fresh wine.

Tasting notes
Attractive colour with golden reflections.
The nose is characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc. Very expressive, it combines the freshness of green notes with more indulgent citrus fruit aromas.
The palate follows on from this, combining freshness and roundness, leading to a very fine finish with notes of candied lemon. A wine to drink in its youth to accompany seafood or as an aperitif.
