“The 2019 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is a rich, powerful wine. Lemon confit, dried flowers, marzipan, sage and mint all open. In 2019, the Blanc has a distinct orchard fruit and savory character. Ultimately, it feels a bit heavy and lacking in freshness. That said, the Blanc has a track record for developing beautifully for decades, so let’s see what happens. I must say I expected more energy and delineation.” 92 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

The 2019 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, matured in 35% new oak, has a divine bouquet of mirabelle and (still) that hint of kaffir lime, displaying wonderful mineralité and energy. The palate is very well balanced with fine salinity, good concentration, a little more weight toward the finish than I remember from last year, and a tanginess that provides energy. It gains complexity with aeration. Noble, refined and classy, this is a Domaine de Chevalier from the top drawer. [Neal Martin, 01/02/2022]
