Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Cru Classé de Graves 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Following on from its fabulous 2004, Domaine de Chevalier's 2005 reinforces itsreputation as not only one of the best dry whites in Bordeaux, but one of thebest in the world. With all the intensity, complexity and texture of a topGrand Cru White Burgundy, this starts slowly but explodes on the palate in acornucopia of exotic citrus and minerals. Made from 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30%Semillon the fruit is incredibly elegant but very rich, and the balance of firmacidity indicates a very long and happy life ahead. Production here istiny (only 1000 cases) so we advise getting in quick!Drink2012-2020.<br/>

This is something of a paradox for such an excellent wine, among the greatest in Bordeaux . Only a great terroir can produce a great wine... I often start out with these words when speaking about Domaine de Chevalier. They convey our fundamental philosophy, not only with regard to viticulture, but also the spirit that pervades the estate, and the men and women who work here. They improve their already considerable skills year after year on behalf of that which is most essential to a fine wine in my opinion — balance. Read less

Stunning. Pours a nice golden colour but has richness you would expect from White Burgundy. The freshness of the Sauvignon Blanc added with the sweetness of Semillon is beautiful with subtle hints of peach, melon and apple.
