ABOUT THE WINE
Located in Léognan, Domaine de Chevalier can be dated back to 1783, and likely existed as a property well before then. It was purchased by the Bernard distilling company in 1983 and produces exceptional red (80% of their production) and dry white wines. Their second-wines offer excellent value and are more approachable in their youth than the grand vin.

TASTING NOTES
85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Semillon. Barrel-aged for 18 months in new and used oak; rich is the best way to describe this wine, which benefited from a terrific ripeness from the Indian summer in 2008. With 14% Alcohol, this is a serious white Bordeaux that has just entered its drinking window as of 2020. A special white wine experience.

FOOD PAIRING
Great with white meat, roast vegetables and strong cheese - very good with a raclette.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Following devastating winter frosts, an Indian Summer resurrected the waning fortunes of the 2008 vintage, allowing the grapes to reach optimal ripeness and providing perfect conditions for the harvest.
