2014 Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan Bordeaux White
Archives from the 17th century show us that the small Domaine de Chivaley included houses, outbuildings, gardens, grounds, vines, woods, and meadows. The name "Chivaley", (meaning "knight" in Gascon) is believed to be linked, for an unknown reason, to the presence of the very old pilgrim trail to Santiago de Compostela which still borders the estate. The term Domaine, later replaced by château, originally had a wider meaning that has since disappeared. It referred to an ensemble, as at Chivaley, formed by a family residence and agricultural estate in which viticulture coexisted with other crops and breeding.. Grapes Blend: 75 % Sauvignon blanc 25 % Semillon.
Intense, fresh and elegant nose, of vine peach, acacia blossom and honeysuckle mixed with mineral and smoky notes, quartz, silica. Delicately creamy and rich palate despite a good acid tension. Exquisite concentration, energy and radiance of fruity taste. Good volume without heaviness.Great long finish.
