Fresh and complex, a fine Pessac-Leognan white wine

The producer

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

The vineyard

Domaine de Chevalier watches over a rare vineyard comprising 5 hectares of white vines. 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

The mild weather at the beginning of the year, combined with an early spring, favored the flowering period at the beginning of June. The summer was marked by stormy and humid weather conditions until the end of August, causing a delay in the ripening period. An Indian summer set in from the end of August to the end of October, combining strong sunshine with dry winds ensuring a good concentration, but also cool nights, ideal weather conditions to help reach optimum ripeness and refine the tannins.

The vinification and aging

The grapes are harvested by hand and undergo successive selections based on their level of ripeness. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in barrels, as is the 18-month aging period (1/3 new barrels), followed by regular stirring of the lees.

The blend

The dry white wine by Domaine de Chevalier 2014 comprises a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (75%) and Semillon (25%).

The tasting

Pure and smooth, this fine white wine from Pessac-Leognan offers an appealing freshness, richness and an intense fruity expression. Throughout the tasting experience, citrus aromas are combined with a delicate mouthfeel and a beautiful minerality.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is a beautiful white Pessac-Léognan. It offers a very succinct and focused bouquet of dew-speckled Granny Smiths, then flint and wet limestone, certainly a more stony bouquet than overt fruit. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, exquisite balance, the citrus fruit dappled with white pepper and spices, but everything very judicious and nuanced. It offers wonderful persistence in the mouth, basically a class act that comes strongly recommended.
