Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac Léognan 2018
Pale green gold with a nose of tight, leesy white stone fruit, not overt, fresh and leafy with a distant lactic note; on the palate big sweet white stone fruits, super ripe and perhaps not as complex as other vintages yet still utterly delicious. Sweet and intense on the palate with a delicious grilled note behind with fine acidity coming through, going to a really long, fresh, vibrant finish. Ends even better than it starts – and it started pretty well! Drink 2021-2027

Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac Léognan 2018

Really good wine, wonderfully subtle. Drink 2026-2037
