    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac Léognan, 2009

    80% Semillon 20% Sauvignon blanc, aged in a third oak but this far from dominates the wine, spicy and fleshy but with pure, clear stone fruit flavours of nectarine and peach with a twist of lemon and citrus rind freshness, hints of ripe gooseberry too, creamy textured with shades of hazelnut complexity. Exquisitely refined, elegant and complex, a first rate white graves that gathers increasing momentum the longer it stays in glass.

    The white Domaine de Chevalier 2017 wafts out of the glass with alluring notes of mandarin peel, lemon meringue pie, and lime blossoms, plus hints of chalk dust, white pepper, and fresh ginger. Medium-bodied, the palate has electric intensity with lots of mineral sparks and a very long multilayered finish. Wow! So youthful...it should age beautifully.

    The 2017 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is reduced on the nose and it needs 20 to 30 minutes in the glass to really find its (aromatic) voice: lemon curd, hazelnut, pressed white flowers and a touch of smoke as it finally speaks up. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity: poised and lively, but quite reserved at first. This is a white Pessac-Léognan predestined for long-term ageing, so stick away in the cellar for a good few years.

    Domaine de Chevalier

    Olivier Bernard's extensive project at Domaine de Chevalier has really come to fruition. After a bold and not to mention expensive re-planting program throughout the `80s and then a decade and a half of patience for the vines to gain maturity, we can really see the benefits. 2005, 2008, 2009 and now 2010 rank amongst the very best wines produced in this sprawling commune. Powerful but graceful, true to their terroir, and just so enjoyable to drink; this has become one of our 'must buy' estates. Olivier's wines offer 'super second' class at relatively affordable prices.
