Description

Chevalier is owned by the Bernard family and its recent success can be attributed to Olivier Bernard who instigated an extensive replanting program from 1988 to 1995 and oversaw the construction of new winemaking facilities including a modern vat room, which has since been updated in 2014.

Domaine de Chevalier has a wonderfully unique and complex terroir comprising 40 hectares of vines on gravel and black sand with a sub-soil of a clay and gravel. The estate produces both red and white Bordeaux using sustainable methods, including organic fertilizers.

CRITIC REVIEWS

CRITIC SCORE:
95/100

The Domaine de Chevalier 2018 Blanc, a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, offers up a gorgeous perfume of ripe Bosc pears, grapefruit oil, mandarin peel and lemongrass, leading to wafts of sea spray, lime blossom and beeswax. The medium to full-bodied palate has a seducing opulence, delivering layers of citrus, pear and floral-inspired flavors with a satiny texture and seamless freshness, finishing long with a spicy kick. It makes for a complex, decadently delicious wine right now, but give it 4-5 years in bottle to see it take on even more savory/toasty layers, and drink it for the next 10-12 years or more.
