100 James Suckling

"The clarity and focus of this white is phenomenal with honeysuckle, white peach, lavender, and melon aromas that follow through to a full body, yet it’s tight and focused with super fine phenolics that keep it together. Great balance between the opulence and freshness. It has great acidity. Incredible energy. pH 3.1."

97 Decanter
"Clear gunsmoke character with slate and graphite, also a ton of white peach, white pear, some sweet mango and a scrape of salinity on the finish. This is balanced and successful, and easy to recommend, completing a strong set of wines at Margaux in the 2020 vintage. 40% of the overall production in the final blend. 3.01pH. Harvest from 24 August to September 1. 100th anniversary of the name Pavillon Blanc (even though they have made a white wine at Margaux for 300 years)."

95 Vinous

"The 2020 Pavillon Blanc is gorgeous. Rich, creamy and expansive on the palate, the Blanc captures all of the radiance of the year. Apricot, passionfruit, mint, lime, crushed rocks and sage all open in the glass. As with the red wines, Pavillon Blanc is at first quite opulent, but then shows the more energetic side of the year on the mid-palate and finish. That's a pretty fabulous combination in my book. Best after 2023."

"I always love the white from this chateau. Their 2020 Chateau Margaux Pavillon Blanc (100% Sauvignon Blanc) has a vibrant, racy, yet still concentrated style to go with classic aromatics of bright citrus, grapefruit, honeyed mint, and a kiss of chalky minerality. This medium-bodied, bright, balanced white will benefit from just 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for over a decade. Best After 2025."

93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2020 Pavillon Blanc bursts with aromas of lemongrass, crisp green apple, white flowers and fresh mint, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate that's pure, racy and charming, exhibiting a somewhat more giving profile than the more chiseled 2019. Best After 2023"
