We proefden Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 1988 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is een witte Bordeaux (sauvignon blanc en semillon). De druiven groeien ten zuiden van Bordeaux bij het dorpje Leognan. De wijn dateert uit 1988. Na het inschenken waren we diep onder de indruk van de geuren welke vrij kwamen. Oud hout, noten, honing en licht zoetig. Heerlijk in de neus. De smaak valt het beste te omschrijven als mild, ondanks de leeftijd. De blanc prikkelt lekker op de tong, heeft veel hout en een stevige afdronk, welke bijzonder lang aanhoudt. Het ruiken aan deze wijn is al een genot op zich. De gelaagdheid en de fantastische balans zijn werkelijk hemels! Het zou zonde zijn deze wijn bij het eten op tafel te zetten, er is een milde complexiteit in deze bordeaux welke het beste solo te ervaren is. We hebben deze wijn gewaardeerd met 92 punten wat hem in het topsegment plaatst.

A backward style of wine with notes of honeyed pears, subtle citrus, candle wax, orange zest and lemon butter, this medium to full-bodied, rich wine has terrific acidity and a long, long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2020–2050.

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.

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.

This is a great wine with its swathes of ripe fruit allied to a very structured character. It is concentrated with complex flavors that bring in wood, tropical fruits, apricots and a dense texture. Combined, these elements give the wine great style and aging potential.


Winemaker's Notes:

"A white with a phenomenal density and richness with creme brulee, apple pie and pear tart character. It's so agile and balanced. Full body, with tangy fruit and a long finish. Crazy intensity and style to this. Speechless.
