2010 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

SKU #1131668 99 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A white with a phenomenal density and richness with creme brulee, apple pie and pear tart character. It's so agile and balanced. Full body, with tangy fruit and a long finish. Crazy intensity and style to this. Speechless. Best dry white from here. Try in 2018. Inner quote mark (10/2014)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a great wine with its swathes of ripe fruit allied to a very structured character. It is concentrated with complex flavors that bring in wood, tropical fruits, apricots and a dense texture. Combined, these elements give the wine great style and aging potential. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A backward style of wine with notes of honeyed pears, subtle citrus, candle wax, orange zest and lemon butter, this medium to full-bodied, rich wine has terrific acidity and a long, long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050. (RP) 94+ Inner quote mark (2/2013)

91-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale straw-yellow. Lemon, chamomile, vanilla, ginger and a faint lactic nuance on the restrained, minerally nose. Pliant and sweet in the mouth, offering good concentration and fat to the vinous lemon, guava and grapefruit flavors. Very minerally on the long finish, showing lingering notes of peach, vanilla and coconut. This should age splendidly and will probably be at its best between 2020 and 2035. (ID) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

Decanter

Outer quote mark A class act. Refined nose of pear and integrated, spicy oak. Very pure. Citrus-pear palate is round, complex and intense. Lingering acidity and beautiful minerality. Drinking Window 2013-2022. 18/20 points (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2012)

K&L Notes

93 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at the UGC and at the property, the Domaine de Chevalier Blanc has a very refined bouquet with hints of lemon curd, apple blossom and a touch of French patisserie. There is still a little oak to be integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine balance, perfectly pitched acidity and subtle notes of apple blossom and white truffle. This is a very suave white Graves, complex and cerebral with a long, slightly nutty/smoky finish. Tasted November 2012."
