The 2007 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc has long been an exemplary white Bordeaux. Now, as it approaches double figures, it continues to give immense pleasure. Initially, the bouquet is not dissimilar to the previous bottle in 2011 with grapefruit, wet gravel and fresh Granny Smith apples, developing an intriguing licorice note as it opens in the glass after 20-30 minutes. The palate is very well balanced and has developed a touch of viscosity in recent years. The acidity imparts tension and liveliness, lime and grapefruit towards the finish that appears to have opened up. What a pretty Domaine de Chevalier! I would start drinking bottles now, but it will easily last 20-25 years. Tasted June 2016.
