(Collectibles) Displays lemon, honey, mineral, fennel seed and lime aromas. Full-bodied, this fills the mouth with lime, apple tart and vanilla character. Very, very intense. Fantastic. Needs time to come together. The best white from this estate in a long time.
Domaine de Chevalier’s fabulous 2005 white offers terrific acidity, body, and texture as well as high acidity, which suggests this wine should enjoy an incredibly long life. I recently had the 1985 at a charity dinner, and it is still remarkably youthful. The 2005 may last just as long, if not longer. Hints of figs, licorice, honeysuckle, and lemon oil are accompanied by a concentrated, dry, nearly austere wine, but there is so much going on, that it should be prodigious with another decade of cellaring. It will last for 30-40+ years.
Bright, pale yellow. Musky aromas of mirabelle, lemon, coconut, flint and resin. Large-scaled, rich and dry, with a sappy quality and lovely aromatic perfume to the flavors of pineapple, lemon and minerals. Boasts terrific viscosity for DDC blanc but is rather closed today. In contrast to the 2006, this rather massive wine is showing its semillon side. The long finish stains the palate with flavors of citrus fruit, minerals, flowers and coconutty oak.
