Domaine de Chevalier 2016 – Pessac-Léognan – Grand Cru Classé

(75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon) The nose is fruity, fresh, elegant, mineral and offers a certain straightness as well as a slight richness. It reveals notes of ripe lemon and slight notes of pink grapefruit associated with discreet hints of mandarin zest, lemon, slight touches of exotic fruits as well as slight/discreet hints of beeswax and gingerbread. The palate is fruity, slight, sleek, well-balanced and offers a beautiful acid frame, a beautiful volume/amplitude, fat, tension, a slight unctuosity, a nice finesse as well as a great richness/opulence (but well-balanced). In the mouth this wine expresses notes of crushed brugnon, pear and small notes of citrus (lemon…) associated with discreet hints of clementine as well as a subtle hint of exotic fruits and very discreet/imperceptible hints of toasted oak (bring small roundness and fat). Good length and beautiful persistence. The finish/persistence is nicely suavity with a toasted touch/brioche and saline minerality. A beautiful wine with a great potential !
