Le vin est marqué d’une superbe fraîcheur associée à une grande richesse. Pure et vive onctuosité ! Le fruité est intense. Les notes classiques d’agrumes sont pondérées d’un exotisme délicat et d’une minéralité marquée. La classe et l’élégance de ce vin laissent entrevoir son grand potentiel…

Bernard Burtschy, Le Figaro Vin, 2015

Un vin ample, complexe, beau fond, du volume, bel équilibre, de la longueur, plus de puissance que d'habitude, musculeux, charnu. Il faut remonter à 2010 pour avoir une telle puissance.

eng Blend: 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Sémillon

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (218), April 2015: 93-95/100

The Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon matured in around 40% new oak, with a low pH, Olivier Bernard remarking that it was close to 3.0. It has an almost clinical nose, extremely well defined, Zen-like at first with scents of flint and cold granite, stone rather than fruit. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, though it is not shrill. It is very focused, "minimalist" Domaine de Chevalier that Olivier remarked is perhaps the best he has ever made. Perhaps he is right. There is a Burgundy like sense of terroir coming through here, a wine that perhaps does not wish to conform to the Bordeaux stereotype of what a white Pessac-Léognan should be. So it's a bit of a sui generis, a one-off, and you'll love it.

James Suckling,, March 2015: 95-96/100

A solid and muscular Domaine de Chevalier with layers of fruit. Very dense, loads of flavor. Full body, bright acidity and a long, long finish. Tangy acidity. It lasts for minutes.

Tim Atkin MW,, April 2015: 93/100

This doesn't quite scale the same heights as the very best vintages of this delicious white blend, but it's still impressive, showing attractive, lees-derived creaminess, notes of pear, candlewax and lemon zest, some struck match and plenty of acidity. It just needs a little more concentration.

Domaine de Chevalier-Cru Classé de Graves-Appellation Pessac-Léognan
Domaine de Chevalier Domaine de Chevalier's history goes back at least as far as the 18th century, when it was known as "Chibaley" (meaning "chevalier", or knight, in the Gason language). The estate was acquired by the Ricard family, who in turn sold it to the Bernard family, France's leading producers of industrial alcohol as well as major Bordeaux négociants. Domaine de Chevalier is now managed by Oliver Bernard, who perpetuates a tradition of quality going back more than 130 years.
