2019 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1480655 96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The flagship white is the 2019 Domaine De Chevalier Blanc. It offers a richer, more concentrated profile that carries rocking caramelized citrus, mandarin orange, and honeyed flower notes as well as full-bodied richness, a layered, opulent texture, bright acidity, and a great finish. It's certainly more opulent and upfront than the 2015 and 2016 were at this stage, and I suspect it will have more upfront appeal as well. It should nevertheless evolve gracefully. Tasted twice. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

95-96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is an opulent, dense white with dried-apple and honey character. Salty and hot-stone notes, too. Full-bodied, round and phenolic. Formed and beautiful. Quite open. Intense length. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, the 2019 Blanc was harvested from 3rd of September to 19th of September. The alcohol is 14%. It is aging on its lees in French oak barrels, 35% new, for an anticipated 18 months. The nose is almost completely shut down on first sniff, soon giving way to notions of freshly squeezed lemons and limes, green apples and pear slices with nuances of orange blossom, fresh ginger and marzipan. Medium-bodied, the palate has a beguilingly satiny texture with crisp freshness, packed full of zesty layers, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB) 94-96+ Inner quote mark (6/2020)

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc was picked from 3 to 19 September and aged on the lees for 18 months in 35% new oak. It has a crisp, delineated nose that gains intensity with aeration, offering enticing aromas of kaffir lime, yellow plums and jasmine. A subtle crushed stone scent emerges with time. The palate is well balanced with a saline entry and just the right amount of piquancy. A very saline, marine-influenced finish that gets the mouth salivating. It just cries out for a heaving platter of shucked oysters! (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Grip, power, nectarine, citrus, slate, this is an excellent Chevalier white that is clearly going to age extremely well. White flowers play around the edges, but it is the texture that appeals the most, reflecting its cooler terroir that works in hot summers like 2019. (JA) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Orchard fruit, citrus confit, white flowers, mint and chamomile nuances all flesh out in white that balances radiance with energy. I can't wait to see how the 2019 develops during its élevage; it is one of the most promising wines of the vintage." (6/2020)
