  • A very odd bottle. Good colour, but distinct odours of plasticine and other industrial chemicals on the nose, not repellent but equally not right. Julia thought mildly decaying apples. Palate has the correct texture, but an arresting acidity which overwhelms other flavours. Julia detected acetone. Other bottles from the same case have been lovely. Not rated.

  • Needs a good 90 min decant- medium plus body, good balance and finish. Seems somewhat young. Hard to say if this is in its prime. This should improve and hold for another 10 plus years. Good value.

  • Does not show it's age at all, bright yellow with gold reflects, really nice nose of lemon, orange zest and touch of grapefruit. There's really nice herbal component with mint and fennel seed to complete the profile. Still a baby, acid backbone is amazing and blind would have not tough that great wine has 10 years. Should continue to blossom over the next 5 years and live for a long time.

  • This sublime wine continues improving with age. The nose, with its mineralistic, fresh, crisp citrus and honeysuckle notes pairs perfectly with the full, rich, lush, sweet, ripe, crisp, fresh, lemon and pomello fruits on the palate. This is good now, but it’s going to get better and better with more age.

  • Tasted next to the 2010. Again lovely, complex nose: Exotic fruit, citrus fruit, slightly floral, hints of caramel, nuts. On the palate zesty, fresh and again very long. 92-94

    (Domaine de Chevalier Blanc) Sweet, honeysuckle nose; tasty but narrow palate with oily texture and high acidity; short medium finish

    (Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Pessac-Léognan) This has a very pure and stylish nose, floral, leafy, creamy and quite direct in character. It remains aromatic and floral on the palate, with very bright fruit character, lifted by a very gentle acetone-pear drop character. Sweetly ripe, but vibrant and well defined, with forceful, vigorous acidity which lefts the wine to another level altogether. Beautiful presence. Clearly the most delicious dry white here, head and shoulders above its peers.
