JAMES SUCKLING: "A deep and layered white with rich and intense structure. It’s full yet agile with so much energy and intensity. Cooked apple, lime zest and nougat with oyster and sea bed undertones. Fascinating already."
WEINWISSER: "70 % Sauvignon Blanc, 30 % Sémillon. Delikates Bouquet, Mandarinenzeste, Nektarine, Marokkominze, ein Hauch Jasmin, edler Kreideton. Am eleganten Gaumen mit pfeffrigem Extrakt und balancierter, perfekt stützender Rasse und edlem mineralischem Kern. Im gebündelten, feinaromatischen Finale weiße Blüten, Quitten und Wachsnoten. Der Wein wirkt sehr beruhigend und punktet mit seiner unglaublichen Raffinesse. 2024 – 2044."
JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2022 Domaine De Chevalier Blanc brings more dimensions and layers, as well as richness. Based on 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon, aging in 40% new oak, it has a beautiful perfume of honeyed citrus, subtle tropical flowers, and chalky, minerality nuances. This carries to a medium to full-bodied white with plenty of density and depth, nicely integrated acidity, and a gorgeous finish. I wouldn't be surprised to see this end up in the top handful of whites in the vintage."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Squeeze grapefruits over crushed rocks, and you get the idea of the perfume. The palate is packed with all the sweet, juicy, ripe pineapples, Granny Smith apples, tangerine skins, pomelo, and honeysuckle you could ask for. The wine provides the perfect blend of fresh, juicy citrus, sweetness, lift and creaminess. Drink this young for its youthful exuberance, or age it a few years for more secondary development. The wine blends 70% Sauvignon Blanc with 30% Semillon, 13.8% ABV, 3.28 pH. The harvest took place August 26 - September 5. Drink from 2025-2037."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: „The 2022 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is made from 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. It needs considerable swirling and coaxing to unlock notes of fresh pineapple, orange blossoms, lime cordial, and juicy pears, giving way to wafts of honeysuckle and cedar. The medium-bodied palate is electric with citrus and tropical fruit layers, framed by a racy backbone and satiny texture, finishing long and mineral-laced. This is nicely done! pH 3.32."
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "The 2022 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc offers up aromas of pear, nectarine, crushed mint jasmine and lemon, followed by a medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated palate with a mineral-driven profile. It's lively and bright, with a delicate, penetrating finish animated by racy acids. This blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon, matured entirely in large wooden foudres and 500-liter barrels instead of the traditional barriques, is one of the finest white wines of the vintage, and one of the few that transcends its limitations."
FALSTAFF: "Helles Gelbgrün, silberfarbene Reflexe. Zarte Kräuterwürze, Nuancen von Pfirsich und Passionsfrucht, Mandarinenzesten und Blütenhonig sind unterlegt. Saftig, gute Komplexität, weißer Tropenfrucht, feiner Säurekern, mineralisch und anhaftend, verfügt über Länge und Potenzial."
JANCIS ROBINSON: "Light nose but a very convincingly mineral palate. Some real delicacy. How did they manage that? Sleek and smoky. A wine for white-burgundy lovers … Very juicy. I suspect this will go through many stages."
