Description

From Pessac Leognan on the Left Bank in Bordeaux – Domaine de Chevalier is becoming a more and more prominent player in the Bordeaux market.  They have recently adopted biodynamic practices in the vineyard that means they are ticking even more boxes. This wine works very nicely as an investment grade wine – or still at the price point where you will not feel guilty by drinking it. After all, that is what wine is made for!

“Here is another wine that needed aeration to really show its mettle, albeit not as much as others. The 2018 Domaine de Chevalier initially comes across a little ordinary. You ask yourself: What’s the fuss all about? But after 60–90 minutes it reveals an absolutely divine nose of raspberry, crushed rose petals, wild mint and Provençal herbs, beautifully defined and gaining intensity with each passing moment. The palate is very well balanced, the predominantly red fruit framed by fine tannins that provide the backbone to this Domaine de Chevalier, yet the overriding impression is one of elegance and finesse. An utterly sublime Pessac-Léognan that is going to give a lot of pleasure over the coming years. 2023 – 2045. 92-94 points – Neal Martin, vinous.com (May 2018)”
