Domaine De Chevalier Rouge

Domaine De Chevalier Rouge

Ref: A037310

Grand Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

The Wine Advocate - "This is one of my all-time favorite wines from Domaine de Chevalier, a silky, rather classic Pessac-Leognan with notes of scorched earth, tobacco leaf and black and red currants, but no hard edges. Fragrant, complex aromatics are followed by a savory, expansively flavored wine made from a final blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine hit 13.5% natural alcohol, which must certainly be among the highest they have ever achieved, even eclipsing the 2009. An opulent, precocious style of wine that seems much more developed, complex and delicious than I thought from barrel, this beauty can be drunk in 5-6 years or cellared for 20 or more."

Domaine de Chevalier was bought by the Bernard family in 1983 and a significant amount has been invested in the vineyards and cellars since. Its principle production is in in the Grand Cru red whilst the white wine only accounts for about 12.5%. The estate's ability to produce both red and white of equal stature is as a result of its fine terroir coupled with great care and attention in both vineyard and cuvage. The poor soil results in naturally very low yields which further adds complexity to its wines.
