Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (230), April 2017: 90-92/100

The Domaine de Chevalier 2016 Blanc has a somewhat delicate, nuanced bouquet this year, one that demanded gentle coaxing from the glass. It reveals delineated aromas of green apple, gooseberry and kiwi fruit, flintiness tucked just behind. The palate is well balanced and slightly Burgundy-like on the entry (strangely, not unlike a Nuits-Saint-Georges Blanc!). It opens nicely in the glass but never looses its head. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity and fine delineation, with pretty lemongrass and shaved ginger notes judiciously sprinkled over the finish. It is a Domaine de Chevalier Blanc that I would be inclined to consume in its youth rather than cellar, but hey, you never know the longevity of these wines; they can always surprise you. Drink Date 2019 - 2029.

James Suckling,, March 2017: 96-97/100

A white with sliced apple, pear and lemon character. Medium to full body, layered and so long. Tight and exciting. So salty and minerally. Structured. Phenolic intensity and all wound up. What a white!

Jancis Robinson MW,, April 2017: 17++ /100

Light and so discreet one can understand why it never shows well in blind tastings. Edge of green. Succulent but so dry and low key… Wait a decade at least and it should please enormously… Drink 2030-2050.

Jane Anson,, April 2017: 94/100

This is clearly one of the more impressive whites on display here. They have teased out a sense of verticality, and you can feel the walls and scrape the flesh of the citrus. If it wasn't for the heights that we know Domaine de Chevalier can ascend to, you would be sighing over the structure of this wine. White peach and rich pear are seasoned with beautiful spicing, but it just lacks the grip and drama of the best vintages. Drinking Window 2019 - 2035.

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.
