The 2022 Pavillon Blanc was picked from 18 August, finishing five days later. Just 50% of the crop was used (14hL/ha), so there will be a second wine for the first time, which is as yet unnamed. Light white peach and orchard fruit on the nose, perhaps it is missing the vigor of the previous vintage? The palate is well balanced with grapefruit and touches of tangerine, quite linear in style, good tension with a bright finish that just lacks the complexity of the best whites from this First Growth.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2034
