The 2021 Pavillon Blanc is one of the finest recent vintages of this cuvée, combining complete maturity with incisive acids to striking effect. Offering up aromas of confit lemon, citrus zest, crisp orchard fruit, and wet stones, it's medium to full-bodied, chiseled, and tensile, with striking concentration and chalky structuring dry extract, concluding with a long, mineral finish. It was picked between September 7 and 13 and attained 13.3% natural alcohol. ~94-96 WA
Gorgeous peach tone on the nose, with bright lemon, clementine, green apple skin, and crushed stones too. Super sharp and fresh straight out the gate, this is searing, focussed, and neat with a shot of lemon juice, so zingy on the mid-palate giving a green apple and peach freshness towards the end. Fruity and extremely lively. It has an unctuous texture, not weighty but delectably textured with a silkiness. You have the acidity but also the opulence, it’s both sharp and immensely layered. A joyful combination of freshness and power - supremely impressive with vibrancy and mass appeal. Drinking Window 2024 - 2049. ~97 Decanter
The 2021 Pavillon Blanc is a fabulous example of how compelling the vintage is for the best dry whites. It marries the nervy freshness that has characterized the Blanc of the late and yet also has quite a bit of textural richness. I was pretty shocked by its weight, to be honest. Lemon confit, white flowers, sage, and mint gradually unfurl in the glass. Quite simply, the 2021 is one of the finest Pavillon Blanc in recent memory. ~94-96 Antoni galloni, Vinous Media
