Critical Acclaim

"Amazing nose of dried fruits from peaches to apples to mangos. Pink grapefruit too. Full and very powerful white with an incredible length and intensity. It's like a beautiful block of velvet in your mouth. It goes on for minutes. It becomes so mineraly and subtly fruity at the end. Turns just to honey. Wow.
Barrel Sample: 97-98 Points"
98 Points

"A powerful wine that’s full of wood and ripe tropical-fruit flavors. It also has an intensely mineral structure that powers the wine right through to the concentrated finish.
Barrel Sample: 95-97 Points"
97 Points

"Bright straw-green. Captivating grapefruit, white peach, lavender and lemon verbena aromas soar from the glass. Rich, dense and suave, with mouthfilling flavors of peach nectar, ripe orange and green fig. The finish is long and wonderfully mouthcoating, with persistent notes of rosemary and oregano; leaves the palate refreshingly clean with its zippy lemony zing. Great stuff.
Range: 92-95 "
95 Points

"Very high-toned today, with a whiff of talcum powder giving way to bright sweet pea and lime notes. The tightly wound finish lets herb and fleur de sel flecks peek out, but there's serious length in reserve.
Barrel Sample: 91–94 Points"

Learn About Domaine de Chevalier Map ItMap It

Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temprature. In fact Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. This is something of a paradox for such an excellent wine, among the greatest in Bordeaux. Only a great terroir can produce a great wine... I often start out with these words when...

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
