Domaine de Chevalier Bordeaux Blanc Wine 2013

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is a blend 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon. It has a potent bouquet with apple blossom and granite scents that are not as immediate as previous vintages but only nicely in the glass after 5 minutes aeration. The palate is a little spicy on the entry. It is a beautifully balanced white Domaine de Chevalier with a fine line of acidity. Perversely the bottle at the Ch

Domaine De Chevalier:
Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact, Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. 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...

Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact, Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. 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

This white is so dense and powerful with a finish that lasts for minutes. Pear lemon grapefruit and loads of minerals. Has more weight than all the red wines made in 2013. Full body. Profound depth. I look forward to tasting this from bottle in a few years. James Suckling.

Very pure lacking the obvious punch of the vintage with a floral note leading the way for a core of verbena yellow apple melon rind and green plum notes. The long stone-tinged finish features finely beaded acidity. Drink now through 2016. -JM Wine Spectator.

Pale straw-yellow. Lemon chamomile vanilla ginger and a faint lactic nuance on the restrained minerally nose. Pliant and sweet in the mouth offering good concentration and fat to the vinous lemon guava and grapefruit flavors. Very minerally on the long finish showing lingering notes of peach vanilla and coconut. This should age splendidly and will probably be at its best between 2020 and 2035. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

An explosion of lemon guava grapefruit lime and fresh picked flowers poured over wet rocks make up the perfume. Thick rich incredibly concentrated and intense this dense wine has the perfect amount of acidity to feel bright and fresh. This was the only wine from the Pessac Leognan tasting that was too good to spit. I put the wine where it belonged. Jeff Leve.
