Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 points: "Along with the glorious 1970, this is my favorite vintage of Domaine de Chevalier during this decade. The 1978 has consistently been a textbook Graves with a tobacco-tinged, smoky, sweet, cedary, berry, and black currant-scented nose. It is still lusciously fruity, round, and generous. This medium-bodied, exceptionally stylish, elegant wine exhibits the exquisite levels of finesse Domaine de Chevalier can achieve without sacrificing flavor and concentration. Anticipated maturity: Now-2005."—RP (1/1998)


Jancis Robinson 17/20pts: "Relatively pale. Fine-boned nose. Audrey Hepburn? Very complete and well balanced though at its apogee. A very typical Dom de Chev with everything in the right place. Very slightly dry finish. I remember this wine tasting fleshier and more appealing."—JR (2/2006)
