The 2015 Domaine du Chevalier dry white expresses Semillon and Cabernet-Sauvignon characters without the former vintages classic citrus fruit aromas (grapefruit, lemon). In fact, white and yellow fruits go together in this fine Pessac-Leognan. This aromatic family is one of the fundamental characteristics of this white vintage. This Domaine de Chevalier 2015 displays a golden yellow hue with a green-golden reflection. The crystal-clear aspect of this colour foreshadows a good acidity, which means an obvious freshness. At the olfactory attack, the nose confirms this tension due to acidity and freshness, not to say the fruits aromatic vibrancy. Delicious notes of pear, nectarine, and wild peach seduce already. This wine is elegant, deep, complex, straight and nervous. On swirling, yellow rose petal notes are added to the aromatic spectrum. On the palate, the attack is dynamic. Acidity adds to this Cru Classé from Graves, while bringing power and balance. The mid-palate is full-bodied on yellow fleshed fruits and verbena tea accents in the retro-olfaction, in absolute freshness. Nervousness, which is often a specific of the Chevalier great vintages, is never too far. It is a very savoury wine. Even though it has surprisingly well opened up at this stage, it is far from revealing the entirety of its richness. What a precise wine!

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Domaine de Chevalier 2015 Blanc is composed of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon, fermented in barrel (35% new), and aged for 18 months on the lees with stirring. It opens with lovely lemon tart, fresh grapefruit and pineapple with a waft of honeysuckle. The medium-bodied palate is very tightly knit with wonderfully crisp acid and a citrusy finish.
