The richness of a fresh and fruity white Grand Vin from Pessac-Leognan

With its 2018, the prestigious Domaine de Chevalier certainly celebrated one of the greatest white vintages ever produced by the emblematic property of Graves, south of Bordeaux.

2018 was an exceptional vintage, marked by extreme weather conditions: a rainy first six months, followed by a miraculous summer with high temperatures and plenty of sunshine right up to the date of the harvest. The fruit harvested showed a perfect balance of power, concentration and freshness.

Blending Sauvignon Blanc (75%) and Semillon (25%), the Domaine de Chevalier White 2018 offers a magnificent expression of its terroirs and grape varieties, displaying all the typicality of the Pessac-Leognan appellation. The aromatic bouquet is very complex and opens upon beautiful notes of summer fruit, including apricot, vine peaches and exotic fruit notes. These are further enhanced by delicate floral notes of honeysuckle, acacia and hawthorn. The palate of this wine is delightful, coating the mouth with its deliciously creamy texture. Rich fruity flavors maintain a great freshness and a remarkable tension. This powerful palate stretches into a remarkably persistent and very fine length, marked by a certain mineral character. An exceptional vintage for Domaine de Chevalier, with promise of a beautiful evolution over time.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Domaine de Chevalier 2018 Blanc, a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, slowly reveals beguiling scents of lemongrass, lime leaves, fresh grapefruit, allspice and ginger with a core of fresh lemon and grapefruit. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bold citrus and spice layers with fantastic tension and a chalky finish. Aging on lees in barriques, 35% new, is anticipated to go for 16 months.
