DOMAINE DE CHEVALIER

2014 Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Village Pessac-Léognan
Classification Cru Classé

This feels very nicely 'claretty'. Great poise is allied with lovely dense fruit extract, perfectly ripe, soft red plum and blueberry, touch of cigar-box spice. The power of this fruit is impressive - but balance is spot on. Good. Rating: 93 L&S (Apr 2015)

Sweet and round and with sufficient fruit for the acidity. Bravo! Really nice wine with more fruit than tannin – though not quite as much flesh as Ch Les Carmes Haut-Brion. Drinking range: 2023 - 2040 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)

The Domaine de Chevalier 2014 is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and 30% Merlot. It has a fragrant bouquet with blackberry, black plum, cigar ash and woodland scents, complex though not as intense as its white counterpart. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy, quite firm tannin that underpin a classic Domaine de Chevalier that has just the right amount of austerity at this stage. Reserved perhaps, but it is beautifully knitted together with a lovely bay leaf tinged finish. Quintessential Domaine de Chevalier...which is what we all want. Drinking range: 2020 - 2040 Rating: 92-94 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(May 2015)

Rich and silky with a great sense of controlled power despite being more extracted than some. Promising hints of how it will develop. Restrained tannins. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. (Highly Recommended Pessac-Léognan, Decanter.) Drinking range: 2023 - 2040 Rating: 94 Steven Spurrier(Apr 2015)

Domaine de Chevalier

Dating back to at least the 17th Century, Domaine de Chevalier is a jewel in the Bordeaux crown. Producing both red and white wines, Domaine de Chevalier - located in Leognan - enjoys an interesting microclimate, surrounded by forest. Since 1983, Olivier Bernard has owned and run the estate. Much has been done to improve the quality of the wines. While the whites always had been appreciated, Bernard has done much to improve both the white and the red wines. This is definitely a wine to buy with confidence; supported by its ranking as Grand Cru Classe de Graves in 1959.
