Description

Tasting Note:  A rather light but fine vintage of Pavillon Blanc. Generally speaking, the white wines performed better than the reds in the Bordeaux region, as the harvest was finished before the October rain set in. To be enjoyed now. (October 2018)

Terroir/Vinification

Climate:  The weather was unsettled for the whole year. Hot weather and dry conditions never really set in, except for a ten-day spell in September, when it was very hot. The harvest began relatively late in difficult conditions with frequent rain showers. Fortunately, the weather was cold, which prevented any rot from developing. (The picking began 5th October)
