"Verzamelaars opgelet: one-off speciaal etiket"

Domaine de Chevalier behoort tot de elite van de appellation Pessac-Léognan en is een klasse apart. Het domaine is gelegen op een open plek temidden van een bos: ‘a secret garden in the Graves’. Een atypisch, moeilijk en grillig terroir waaraan, op het eerste gezicht heel paradoxaal, Domaine de Chevalier juíst zijn grote klasse ontleent!

Het domaine is sinds 1983 in bezit van de familie Bernard. Olivier Bernard werkt zelf ook in de négoce en heeft een goede neus voor prijzen en markten. En als je één ding aan dit domein moet toeschrijven, naast de uitmuntende kwaliteit natuurlijk, dan is het wel de eerlijke prijsstelling.

Jane Anson: ‘one of the best-loved and most consistently impressive estates in Bordeaux. I would also suggest once of the best value, in terms of ageability and complexity, across both red and white versions’.

=> U kunt zich bijna niet voorstellen hoe goed de jaargang 2022 is. Wellicht dat dit iets zegt: de bekende criticus James Suckling beloont de Domaine de Chevalier 2022 Blanc (en overigens ook de rode 2022) de hoge score van (98-99)/100: dezelfde score als Pessac-Léognan 1e Grand Cru Classé 1855 Château Haut-Brion Blanc!

Verzamelaars opgelet: deze wijn worden geleverd met een speciaal one-off etiket om te vieren dat dit Olivier Bernard’s 40e jaargang is.

A deep and layered white with rich and intense structure. It’s full yet agile with so much energy and intensity. Cooked apple, lime zest and nougat with oyster and sea bed undertones. Fascinating already.

The 2022 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc offers up aromas of pear, nectarine, crushed mint jasmine and lemon, followed by a medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated palate with a mineral-driven profile. It's lively and bright, with a delicate, penetrating finish animated by racy acids. This blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon, matured entirely in large wooden foudres and 500-liter barrels instead of the traditional barriques, is one of the finest white wines of the vintage, and one of the few that transcends its limitations.

The 2022 Domaine De Chevalier Blanc brings more dimensions and layers, as well as richness. Based on 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon, aging in 40% new oak, it has a beautiful perfume of honeyed citrus, subtle tropical flowers, and chalky, minerality nuances. This carries to a medium to full-bodied white with plenty of density and depth, nicely integrated acidity, and a gorgeous finish.
I wouldn't be surprised to see this end up in the top handful of whites in the vintage.

Squeeze grapefruits over crushed rocks, and you get the idea of the perfume. The palate is packed with all the sweet, juicy, ripe pineapples, Granny Smith apples, tangerine skins, pomelo, and honeysuckle you could ask for. The wine provides the perfect blend of fresh, juicy citrus, sweetness, lift and creaminess. Drink this young for its youthful exuberance, or age it a few years for more secondary development. The wine blends 70% Sauvignon Blanc with 30% Semillon.

The 2022 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is made from 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. It needs considerable swirling and coaxing to unlock notes of fresh pineapple, orange blossoms, lime cordial, and juicy pears, giving way to wafts of honeysuckle and cedar. The medium-bodied palate is electric with citrus and tropical fruit layers, framed by a racy backbone and satiny texture, finishing long and mineral-laced. This is nicely done! pH 3.32.

Touch of reduction on the first nose, intense, gunsmoke-filled aromatics, clearly aimed at extremely long ageing. Great quality, stands out for its serious structure, with clove, aniseed and fennel woven through citrus and white pear, has weight and manages to stay on the savoury side of ripe. Needs time and food. Tasted twice. 40th harvest of Olivier Bernard (meaning a special label), 33% new oak.

The 2022 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc was picked from 22 August to 1 September. It has an instantly satisfying bouquet as it ‘launches’ scents of passion fruit, lemon rind and patisserie scents, very well-defined and focused. The palate is intense on the entry and impressive in weight and density. Perhaps there’s not quite the tension of the previous vintage, but it is long and thickly textured on the finish. Excellent

Light yellow green, silver reflections. Delicate herbal savouriness, nuances of peach and passion fruit, tangerine zest and blossom honey in the underlay. Juicy, good complexity, white tropical fruit, fine acidity, mineral and lasting. Good length and certain ageing potential.

Light nose but a very convincingly mineral palate. Some real delicacy. How did they manage that? Sleek and smoky.
A wine for white-burgundy lovers … Very juicy. I suspect this will go through many stages.
