Domaine de Chevalier blanc 2010
Domaine de Chevalier is situated in Pessac-Leognan—just outside Bordeaux itself. Their wine tends to divide the critics as they are very much classic wines that need time to open—not the fruit forward styles that you see more often these days. But find a more mature vintage like here and you get a brilliant wine—and at great value.
Very pure and bright color. Pale gold with light green glints. White peach, citrus and exotic fruit, intense minerals on the nose.
Very tasty and greedy on the palate. Concentration and perfect balance.
Great freshness and powerful. Very long. Great wine.
