Straw, medium viscosity and intensity. Just ripe lemon, pear, cassis, green onions, mint, hay, gravel, and new oak spices and vanilla on the nose, tart citrus, green apple, red melon, peach pith, more gravel and new oak on the palate. Dry, medium body, medium+ acid, medium+ alcohol, long finish.

Drank 8/2/18. Nice pairing with Chicken Picatta.

2nd wine of Domaine De Chevalier. This is the white, although the red was nice as well.

Nose of lemon, toasted oak, and minerals. Flavors of citrus accompanied by toast and some wood notes. Nice acidity and medium to long finish. A little more complex, but less fresh and versatile the the "Clos de Lunes" line from the same winery. Depends what mood you are in

3/21/8/4/4 +50 = 90 pts

The Chevalier Pessac-Leognon blanc was awesome, 2012 is a special vintage for this wine. Not sure the last vintage this wine was ever a disappointment.

Lovely. Grass, honeydew, slightly waxy. Great balance.

This is really a nice wine. Lovely aroma, and full flavors in the mouth, with decent length and fun complexity. This is one I wish I’d bought more of...
