Domaine de Chevalier blanc 2000 P (W.S.) : 95 (Jul 31, 2003)

This is a blockbuster. It’s full of superripe apple, lemon and fresh peach character. Yet very reserved. Full-bodied, with super structure and a long, long finish. Like grand cru Burgundy. Fantastic. Best after 2006. 1,500 cases made. –JS

Dom de Chevalier blanc 2000 (Jancis Robinson) : 16.5 +

Very pure initially and then just a tad wet woolly on the nose - but bone dry, firm, racy and exactly what one expects of mid-life Dom de Chevalier.
When to drink : 2006 - 2020

Domaine de Chevalier blanc 2000 (R. P.) : 90

One of the best dry whites of the vintage, the 2000 offers up notes of lanolin, citrus, grapefruit, smoke, and minerals with notions of toasty wood in the background. This medium to full-bodied, deep, concentrated, pure, intense effort is a success for the vintage. It should hit its peak in 5-6 years and last for two decades.
Drink : 2008 - 2023. Rating 90

Domaine de Chevalier blanc 2000 (N.Martin) : 92, Wonderful ! (March 2013)

Surpassing both the 1980 and 1990 Blanc served alongside, the Domaine de Chevalier 2000 has a sophisticated bouquet with touches of lavender, citrus peel, crushed stone and buttercup. It is lively and fresh. The palate has a lovely, mineral-rich core with a strong citric thread – hints of white peach, rhubarb and ginger towards the finish now that the oak is fully integrated. Wonderful ! Drink now-2025. Tasted November 2012.
