    Winemaker's Notes:

    The white Domaine de Chevalier, with the unusual feature of being remarkably well suited for cellaring, is recognised as one of the world's finest dry white wines.

    The grapes are harvested with successive pickings through the vines. The juice is then slow pressed, with settlement and alcoholic fermentation in the barrel. The wine is aged on lees in the barrel with stirring for 18 months.

    70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very pale color. Pungent, high-toned aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, quinine, ginger, mint, minerals and flowers. Densely packed and succulent, with refreshing, sharply delineated flavors of lime, grapefruit, mint and minerals. Offers a compelling sweetness buffered by bright acidity. At once supple and gripping, and very long and lively on the back end. This is 13% alcohol without any chaptalization. A great early showing. Range 92-94

    Great wine, very well balanced and nice subtle taste of vanilla, but price point would discourage from buying again.
