Domaine de Chevalier is a prestigious winery in Bordeaux, France, known for its exceptional red and white wines. With a rich history and a commitment to traditional winemaking practices, the estate produces wines that showcase the unique terroir of the Pessac-Léognan appellation. The red wines, made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, exhibit elegance, finesse, and remarkable aging potential. The white wines, crafted from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, display freshness, complexity, and a beautiful balance of flavors. Domaine de Chevalier is highly regarded by critics and wine enthusiasts, consistently delivering wines of depth, complexity, and outstanding quality. It stands as a benchmark for excellence in Bordeaux.

The Chevalier Blanc exhibits a crystalline, pale gold color. Its nose is punchy, pulpy, intense, fresh, and complex. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, peach, and mango intertwine with balsamic and mineral fragrances of pine, quartz, and flint, revealing the true essence of the terroir. On the palate, the wine showcases an exquisite and intense pulpy richness balanced by a beautiful fruity acidity. The combination of spicy and soft white fruits creates silky flavors, and the perfect maturity of the healthy fruits imparts a delightful sweetness. The wine's flesh exudes purity and delicacy, boasting an elegant body. With its sophisticated and perfectly balanced profile, this wine offers tremendous taste and great persistence.

The 2016 vintage was a resounding success, thanks to several crucial factors coming together harmoniously. A significant rainy period from January to June replenished water reserves and set the stage for a potentially abundant crop. The flowering period in June was nothing short of miraculous, ensuring a generous harvest. An exceptionally dry spell from July to September added richness and power to the grapes. Much-needed rain finally arrived in early September, providing a boost to ripening and refreshing the vines. The arrival of an Indian summer from September to October contributed finesse and elegance to the wines. The 2016 vintage stands as a testament to the perfect alignment of weather conditions, resulting in wines of exceptional quality and character.

JS 98 points from JS Wine Ratings
“Still very shy on the nose, but the candied citrus, fresh melon, pear and quince notes come through on the palate, together with discreet, toasty oak. Although this is really concentrated, the power is underplayed and the enormous, herbal and mineral depth steals up on you slowly and then whisks you away. You could enjoy it now, but there’s enormous aging potential. A blend of 70 per cent sauvignon and 30 per cent semillon.” - Tasted on Jun 22, 2021 by James Suckling

"The Domaine de Chevalier 2016 Blanc is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon. The nose reveals spiced pears, waxy lemons, honeysuckle and yuzu with wafts of lime juice and green guava. Medium-bodied with great intensity and elegance, it has a racy line cutting through the citrus and tropical layers, finishing long." - Tasted on Dec 01, 2018 by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
