Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan
Graves Cru Classé
0,75
White
This much sought after wine is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. There is great purity in the nose with aromas of orchard fruit, blossom and kiwi. On the palate the wine is remarkably balanced and silky, more expressive with notes of citrus, nutmeg and white peach. Quite discrete but this is all I want in a great white Bordeaux.
