Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

JS 97
James Suckling
This lasts for minutes on the palate with incredible depth of fruit and salty highlights. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and a minerally, dried-lemon undertone. Energetic.
JD 96
Jeb Dunnuck
As with the 2015, the 2014 Pavillon Blanc is a stunning wine, and I actually prefer it to the 2015 at the moment. From 100% Sauvignon Blanc brought up mostly in barrel, this beauty offers an exotic, taut, racy style as well as loads of lime peel, Meyer lemon, and orange blossom, with a building minerality and liquid rock-like character coming through with time in the glass. Vibrant, concentrated, and beautifully balanced, you can safely drink bottles over the coming 4-5 years or cellar for a decade more.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Very chiseled in feel, this glistens with verbena and tarragon notes, followed by lemon pith and yellow apple core flavors. A zing of fleur de sel drives the talc-dusted finish. A wine of rapier cut and terrific length. Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2026.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux has quite an intense bouquet with aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom, just as it showed out of barrel. It feels tightly wound, just like its red counterparts, and will benefit from a couple of years in bottle. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry—this is where all the action is. Lively and vivacious, it doles out enticing notes of dried apricot, pineapple, white peach and fennel, fanning out with abandonment on the persistent finish. What a great Pavillon Blanc! This comes recommended.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
With swathes of delicious herbal and green Sauvignon Blanc fruit just delicately underpinned by the wood aging, this is a wine that is rich while remaining so crisp. It is the tangy grapefruit and crisp texture that will allow this wine to age. Drink from 2020.

Chateau Margaux, France
Chateau Margaux  Winery Image

Chateau Margaux, a Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux, is one of the most famous wines in the world. Care has been lavished on the property by a line of owners with an abiding concern for the reputation of the estate.

For more than five hundred years, season after season, generations of vineyard-workers, grapeharvesters, cellar-workers, coopers and many other craftsmen have all played a part in making Chateau Margaux what it is today: a wine with an incomparable personality, reflected in the elegant Palladian building which adorns its label. In 1977, the estate was purchased by the late André Mentzelopoulos, and it is now run by his daughter, Corinne Mentzelopoulos.

One of the most important wine regions of the world, Bordeaux is a powerhouse producer of wines of all colors, sweetness levels, and price points. Separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest, this relatively flat region has a mild maritime climate, marked by cool wet winters and warm summers. Annual weather differences create significant vintage variations, making Bordeaux an exciting region to follow.

The Gironde estuary, a defining feature of Bordeaux, separates most of the region into the Left Bank and the Right Bank. Farther inland, where the Gironde splits into the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, the bucolic, rolling hills of the area in between, called Entre-Deux-Mers, is a source of great quality, approachable reds and whites.

The Left Bank, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, contains the Médoc, Graves, and Sauternes, as well as the region’s most famous chateaux. Merlot is important here as the perfect blending grape for Cabernet Sauvignon adding plush fruit and softening Cabernet's sometimes hefty tannins. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec may also be used in the Left Bank blends.

Merlot is the principal variety of the Right Bank; Cabernet Franc adds structure and complexity to Merlot, creating wines that are concentrated, supple, and more imminently ready for drinking, compared with their Left Bank counterparts. Key appellations of the Right Bank include St. Emilion and Pomerol.

Dry and sweet white wines are produced throughout the region from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and sometimes Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris. Some of the finest dry whites can be found in the the Graves sub-appellation of Pessac-Léognan, while Sauternes is undisputedly the gold standard for sweet wines. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wine are made in Bordeaux as well.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
