Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 2012

Floral and fresh on the nose, with notes of preserved lemon and green galia melon. These characters continue onto the palate, which is broad and mouthfilling, yet is framed by a grapefruit-skin character, lively acidity and linear mineral drive.

Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 2012

Some archives cite domain Chivaley, Knight Gascon, as a set of houses, gardens, land, woods and vineyards close, dating from the seventeenth century. Knight is certainly reference to the old way of Saint Jacques de Compostela, bordering the area until today.
Only 5 of the 45 hectares of this Pessac-Léognan, protected by forest, are dedicated to white varieties, made up of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sémillon.
The wines are aged in barrels (35% new) for 18 months.
Chevalier Blanc 2012 Domaine is a pale gold color. It offers a complex and intense nose, with aromas of fresh fruit (citrus, vineyard peaches, pineapple) and slight mineral notes menthol.
In the mouth it expresses a light acidity and pleasant fruity, giving it the sweetness. A balanced wine.

I was surprised it was a white with such an intense colour. Clearly noticeable aromas of white fruits. This has a very very long aftertaste.
Pefect with a dutch cheese.
It was a birthday present for my friend.
