Domaine de Chevalier Jéroboam 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Amazing nose of dried fruits from peaches to apples to mangos. Pink grapefruit too. Full and very powerful white with an incredible length and intensity. It's like a beautiful block of velvet in your mouth. It goes on for minutes. It becomes so mineraly and subtly fruity at the end. Turns just to honey. Wow. 97-98" JS 04/12

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

After producing a great 2006 Chevalier 2007 is the star of the white wines from Pessac-Leognan this year. The color is a yellow pale and the nose is impressive. Fine and subtle it offers aromas never found before at this estate. Floral characteristics of rose hint of citrus spices and pepper. It is both fresh and dense at the same time. Beautiful silky entry on the palate. Then it starts melting like it has never done before. This smoothness is absolutely remarkable. After the mid-palate it finds back a more classic tasting profile becoming vivid sappy powerful spicy and finishing tasty with lots of depth. Great length. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com
