    Tasting Notes

    Vinous 94

    The 2019 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc has a well-defined bouquet with citrus peel and light fume scents, focused and with admirable vigor. The palate is well-balanced with fine weight and intensity married with counterbalancing acidity. Cohesive with a subtle reduction on the finish – this is a quality dry white Bordeaux. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting. [Neal Martin, 28/02/2023]

    Anticipated maturity: 2024-2040

    Robert Parker 96

    Domaine de Chevalier’s 2019 Blanc is performing brilliantly, unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus pith, white currants, crisp orchard fruit, spring flowers, lemongrass and beeswax. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it’s concentrated and structured, with terrific depth at the core, racy acids and a long, sapid finish. This is a white Bordeaux where the vulgarity of Sauvignon is sublimated rather than emphasized, and the result is a compelling wine of considerable complexity and aging potential.
