"Light aroma. Crisp and fresh, with nice, sweet fruit and a fine seam of acidity. Appealing, with good fruit and balance. Long crisp finish. Medium to long term 2012-20"

FINE WINE, DOMAINE de CHEVALIER 2007 : 18**
(FINE WINE, issue 20, 2008)
DOMAINE DE CHEVALIER 2007, white : 18 * *
"MB/TD : a litle reduced intitially, but wonderfully complex in its aromas on aeration, then a dense focused palate, the acidity perfectly balanced with the alcohol and structure of the wine, its elegance and purity setting it in a class apart. Above all, its finish is at once more complex and more precise than that of most of its peers, making it the gold standard yet again. 17,5-18
MS : Fine cedar, mineral, and lemon zest scent, rich, elegantly balanced, vigorous middleweight, a considerable concentration of fruit, but without any sense of excess, and firm, vital acidity, a dry, fruit and mineral-intense wine of great aromatic projection and persistence, both on the palate and on the finish, but retaining its elegant proportions. A splendid Domaine de Chevalier, wich will need, and reward, considerable botle age. 2018-35+. 18+
WINE AND SPIRIT
Domaine de Chevalier blanc 2007 : 92-93
"There’ll be no shortage of demand for this outstanding dry white, made from 90% Sauvignon Blanc. Wonderful complexity. While this white DdC is the more famous - and more expensive - don’t forget the red this year. 2010-2022
Alan Duran’s. Periodic Review of Bordeaux Wine
* 2007 (white):93-96
This estate produces some of the best Whites I have ever tasted! The 2007 is no exception since it demonstrates big white-fruit aromas intertwined with honey, orange zest, and underlying mineral with notions of white flower. A wine of finesse, expansiveness, and substantial concentration in addition to a beautiful symmetry, and pristine precision. There is no doubting it is a massive wine of direction and appeal, but can it exceed the 2006? A star in the vintage! 93-96
Chevalier, White Primeur : 94-96
"94-96 Domaine de Chevalier, Pessac-Léognan
Very closed, this is going to be a powerful expression of the chalky, flinty side of white Bordeaux. The spice and balance are already impressive."
