    (Domaine de Chevalier Blanc (Pessac-Léognan)) Pure fruit, lifted, high-toned even and lightly volatile. Green fruit character, hints of passion fruit but overall more greengagey in all honesty. Rather bold and broad rather than elegant on the palate, big and well-styled but in possession of more texture and substance than delicacy or finesse. There is some nice acidity coming through in the midpalate though. A touch of fruit pastille-sweetness at the end. I suspect this will develop more interest with time although it isn't a wine of the very high level of quality that this domaine has attained in other recent vintages.

    (Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Pessac-Léognan) This is pure, lifted and rich, showing plump pear and stone fruit. It has an elegantly polished character to it, and all seems in total harmony. There is a slightly greener edge to the fruit than is found in some of the bigger wines but I like that. The palate is full, stylish, with delightfully vibrant and lifted fruit notes, and intense and piercing freshness and vivacious acidity. Full of vigour, in combination with midpalate flesh, this is a brilliant effort.
