The Purity and Structure of a Grand Cru Classe from Graves

With wines that shine vintage after vintage, at the very top of the appellation, the Graves Grand Cru Classe Domaine de Chevalier is one of the most important references of Pessac-Leognan, also producing one of the greatest whites of Bordeaux.

While 2017 will forever be remembered for the frost that hit the vineyards of Bordeaux, this vintage is already showing signs of excellence among Bordeaux white wines and the white Grand Vin of Domaine Chevalier proves it. The weather during the summer of 2017 allowed the grapes to achieve optimal phenolic maturity, while preserving an aromatic freshness with a nice balance between sugar and acidity. During the tastings of Primeurs Week 2018, professionals of the sector spoke of 2017 as potentially one of the best for whites of the region.

The Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 2017 reveals the identity of each grape variety included in the blend, by offering the aromatic freshness of Sauvignon Blanc (70%) and the fruity brilliance of Semillon (30%). The nose reveals the brightness and purity of fruit, while the palate emerges very full-figured, rich in flavors and with a perfect tension-acidity balance that stretches into a long finish, touched with minerality. A refined and elegant Graves Grand Cru Classé that promises to be one of the most beautiful references of the 2017 vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Closed on the nose to begin, the Domaine de Chevalier 2017 Blanc (composed of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon) opens to aromas of ripe pears, Golden delicious apples and white peaches with notions of straw, honeysuckle and chalk. Medium-bodied, the palate is seriously intense and racy with loads of mineral sparks on the finish. It was aged for 16 months in French oak, 35% new.
