A family Domaine, owned and managed by Olivier Bernard, the last thirty years have been of constant reinvestment in all aspects of the Chateau, vineyards and Cellars with profound success. The whites made here often compared in quality to Grand Cru Burgundy, are also known for their ageing potential yet also delicious whilst young displaying abundant flavours of peaches, apricots and lychees, with citrus notes guaranteeing freshness.
Made with Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, this is a very pure, linear wine which should age splendidly for decades, gaining in flesh and volume. That being said, it’s impeccably balanced and can be enjoyed in its early years too.
Bright straw. Floral nuances complement gooseberry, peach nectar, lemon verbena and mineral aromas on the slow-to-open nose. Rich, bright flavors of guava, green banana and rosemary are lifted by a laser beam of acidity and complicated by hints of underripe passion fruit and pear. Finishes chewy and long, with a strong impression of extract. This very pure, linear wine should age splendidly for decades, gaining in flesh and volume, but it's impeccably balanced and remarkably drinkable right now.- 94 pts Ian D’Agata, VinousMedia
A blend of 85% Sauvignon Bland and 15% Semillon, the Domaine de Chevalier Blanc has a very taut bouquet with scents of granite, lemon rind and a touch of white peach and chalk dust. Great focus and intensity although it takes time to unwind. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely elegant white peach and a drop of wild honey, very good acidity and a caressing, vanilla-tinged finish that shows great length. This is better than the red this year.- 94 pts Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
