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. – Description from dvoristanac

  • Growing up fishing from boats off the coast of Santa ... prefer something like a Domaine de Chevalier sauvignon blanc/semillon blend). Barracuda is a tricky customer, with strong flavor and toxins to deal with, and I usually marinated the hell out of it (sometimes with red wine) and BBQ'd it.

  • Going back to the Lingcod story I hinted at in the other thread, here's how that went...I just remember trying Lingcod years ago at some place like King's fish house, and then never seeing it again. I'd even read fish reports in the newspaper and hardly see any caught except sometimes a few in Oxnard, etc. Seems like they are mostly caught off o... Read More

    This Semillon-based wine of Domaine de Chevalier is wonderful - like lightly infused water of a good mineral spring dominated by white berry fruit like gooseberry. Soft, somewhat light, this is a wonderful buy. 90 points.... but drink now for best results. Read More

  • After UGC on Saturday (the Domaine de Chevalier Blanc was awesome, not much else), I wasn't in the mood for wine on Sunday. Doesn't pair well with football anyway. Tried some Pimm's cup for the first time, which was pretty good. Then drank a bunch of beer. Some Lagunitas IPA, some organic Belgium stuff, some Moose Drool (brown ale), I like the M... Read More

  • After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive.  Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More
