The richness of a fresh and fruity fine Pessac-Léognan white wine

The producer

Owned by the Bernard family since 1983, the beautiful Domaine de Chevalier is one of the finest Crus Classés in Bordeaux. Like a secret garden, this iconic vineyard located in the Pessac-Léognan appellation, to the south of Bordeaux, is surrounded by a green haven.

The vineyard

Domaine de Chevalier watches over a rare vineyard comprising 7 hectares of vines destined for the production of white wine. A true patchwork of terroirs, the Domaine de Chevalier vineyard is composed of black sand and fine white gravel soil and rests on a perfectly drained clay-gravel subsoil.

The vintage

An exceptional vintage, 2018 was marked by extreme weather conditions. The rainy first seven months of the year were followed by a miraculous summer, with high temperatures and plenty of sunshine until the harvest. The grapes harvested show a perfect balance, combining power, concentration and freshness.

The vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand and undergo successive selections based on their ripeness level. The wine is fermented in barrels and aged for 18 months (1/3 of which are new), with regular stirring of the lees.

The blend

The 2018 Domaine de Chevalier dry white wine comprises a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (75%) and Semillon (25%).

The tasting

Nose

Complex and precise, the nose blends delicate fruity fragrances (vine peach, apricot, mango, lychee) with subtle floral notes (hawthorn, acacia, honeysuckle).

Palate

Full and smooth, the palate is seductive due to its silky touch, its concentration and its freshness. An intense fruity expression is combined with a rich, suave and refined structure. The palate combines both a mineral character and a perfect balance between power and tension, leading to a very fine finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Domaine de Chevalier 2018 Blanc, a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, slowly reveals beguiling scents of lemongrass, lime leaves, fresh grapefruit, allspice and ginger with a core of fresh lemon and grapefruit. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bold citrus and spice layers with fantastic tension and a chalky finish. Aging on lees in barriques, 35% new, is anticipated to go for 16 months.
