2007 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac Léognan

2007 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac Léognan

Ref: BORD0727
White  |  Still  |  13% ABV

Domaine de Chevalier is not easy to find, hidden in woodland as it is. The Ricard family, who owned the property from 1865 to 1983 introduced drainage in the '60s tom improve the moisture-retaining soils. The Bernard family bought Domaine de Chevalier in '83 and started buying neighbouring plots until the vineyard area was almost doubled in size. Trees around parts of the vineyard have been cleared, since they increased the risk of frost. And new wine-making facilities were added in order to cope with the additional volume of production. The red and white wines from this estate are among the finest of their commune.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"The 2007 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc has long been an exemplary white Bordeaux. Now, as it approaches double figures, it continues to give immense pleasure. Initially, the bouquet is not dissimilar to the previous bottle in 2011 with grapefruit, wet gravel and fresh Granny Smith apples, developing an intriguing licorice note as it opens in the glass after 20-30 minutes. The palate is very well balanced and has developed a touch of viscosity in recent years. The acidity imparts tension and liveliness, lime and grapefruit towards the finish that appears to have opened up. What a pretty Domaine de Chevalier! I would start drinking bottles now, but it will easily last 20-25 years. Tasted June 2016." Neal Martin

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
