Tasting :

" It has a crisp, focused, mineral-driven bouquet with superb delineation. Delivers very subtle, chalk and limestone aromas intertwined with the pure green apple and lime fruit. The palate is very well-balanced with a seductive entry: hints of greengage, red apple, pear and dried apricot with a saline note at the side of the mouth. This feels voluminous in the mouth, the pedigree of the terroir really coming through, offering tremendous weight and persistency on the finish. Long and tender, this Chevalier will be worth hunting down after bottling, even if there is just one barrel." -NM Wine Advocate
