Super nice wine. The sweet, honeysuckle, citrus and red grapefruit nose gets you going. With , 60 minutes of air, the wine softens, leaving you with elegant, fresh, citrus and stone notes. Still young, this has serious aging potential.
Powerful aromas of coconut and citrus. Dense and powerful, lots of coconut oak on the entry, opening out with layers of creamy lemon and tropical passion fruit notes. Layers of flavour wrapped in zippy acidity. The oak characteristics return on the finish with a lingering butterscotch note. Fantastic, but still so very young.

(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.
