The 2012 vintage has been exceptional for dry whites and Domaine de Chevalier makes one of the best and most sought-after in any vintage. This therefore an unsurprise star of our tastings and one of our picks for the vintage. Floral and fresh on the nose, with notes of preserved lemon and green galia melon. These characters continue onto the palate, which is broad and mouthfilling, yet is framed by a grapefruit-skin character, lively acidity and linear mineral drive. Toned and bright, this is white Bordeaux as it should be!
