Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 2019 (750ML)
94-96+ Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate: "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." 6/20
93-95 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "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!" 6/20
92-94+ Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "A wine of real personality, the 2019 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc has breadth and resonance to burn. 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." 6/20
96 Points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com: "Very pretty with lovely apple, cream, lavender, pineapple and light honey. Full-bodied, yet creamy and refined, with great length and polish. Fresh acidity, but the finish is polished and pretty. Subtle. 70% sauvignon blanc and 30% semillon. Drink in 2024." 02/22
