    July 21, 2016 - Owned this bottle for quite some time. Pale golden in color, at first fairly brioche on the nose, quite full bodied. First hour fairly shut, was not sure what to expect. Hour 2-3 now we're talking, just starts to open up and really becomes integrated, and some fresh fruit and acidity comes about as well. Very complex and long length. This is super. I would think it's still on the young side and could use more time in the cellar. Also, I would recommend decanting a few hours and then re-chilling back in the bottle etc This is very special in 2004. 96+

    June 21, 2016 - Nine of us had an evening of 9 different Old World wines and this along with a Sicilan white were the only two whites. Olivier Bernard (think he is still the owner) makes a terrific value red and white with the latter being pricier. I think it deserves to be because his white is an relatively more unique experience and the 04 is a solid example of it. Can be enjoyed now but it will probably be tasty for another 4-6 years at least.

    May 6, 2016 - 04 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc had honey, caramel, mineral and tropical fruit. Intense with good weight. 91+

    May 1, 2016 - 1+h decant. Lovely dark/golden colour, very sexy. Intriguing and expressive, lightly botrytised nose. Petroleum, honey and ripe citrus screams out of the glass. Perhaps the wine overdelivers on the nose, at first it feels a bit disappointing on the palate. However, if concentrating on the mouth feel it is really plush and complex, with pineapple, grapefruit, ginger and flowers in the mix. I am 91-92p on this. If the wine had held what is promises on the nose it would have been 95p earily. Dealer told me that there is quite a lot of bottle variation here. It is going to be interesting to taste further bottles of this.

    April 9, 2016 - 50+5+12+17+8.
    Straw coloured. A bit too cold (8 degrees) in the beginning. Great balance, bouquet dominated by citrus, mineraliy and oak. Got more intense with some time in the glass and some degrees higher temperature. Powerful taste, still young, medium acidity, nice balance, really good length. A very good wine, but not great at the moment. I will try again within 3-5 years.

    (Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Pessac-Léognan) As with last years sample of the 2003 this is quite closed, showing little more than a faint crispness. The palate clearly shows that this is built for the cellar; balanced, elegantly textured, sappy but reserved, vaguely nettly through the midpalate but rounding out with a flourish of flavour on the finish. Potentially very good indeed.
