"This is so solid and structured. It’s bigger and better than most 2014s! What a wine. Full body with flavors of stones, dried apples and pears. Goes on for minutes. Yes man!"

Product Description:

"The white Domaine de Chevalier is recognized as one of the world’s finest dry wines.

Pale gold bright color with green glints. Explosive nose of citrus fragrances mixed of white peach and exotic fruit. Fresh and mineral aromas. Outstanding tension and freshness on the palate with intense and amazing flavors. This wine is built for aging and it will provide its complex and tasty flavors for a long time.

Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. 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." - Winery

"Only a great terroir can produce a great wine… I often start out with these words when speaking about Domaine de Chevalier. They convey our fundamental philosophy, not only with regard to viticulture, but also the spirit that pervades the estate, and the men and women who work here. They improve their already considerable skills year after year on behalf of that which is most essential to a fine wine in my opinion - balance" - Olivier Bernard
