Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Pessac Leognan 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2013 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is very refined on the nose. There is a sense of effortlessness here that is very persuasive, unfolding with lemon thyme and lime, just a touch of lychee in the background, everything in its right place. The palate is fresh and vibrant with nectarine and lime zest, a "cool" white Bordeaux, quite restrained and almost Chablis-like on the finish. This is a complex and intellectual offering from Olivier Bernard, dare I say, a thrilling wine in the making.94pts Neil Martin-Wine Advocate October 2016

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
