Description

Domaine de Chevalier, Pessac Leognan, Bordeaux, France, 2018

Grape Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Merlot 65%, Petit Verdot 5%. Yield 40hl/ha

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Wow. I can't get over the pureness of fruit in this wine with so much currant, tar and wet-earth character. Flowers, too. So aromatic. Full body, yet pureness and brightness of fruit. Layered. Incredible depth and beauty. 65 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 30 per cent merlot and 5 per cent petit verdot. Greatest ever?"

(99-100/100) points, James Suckling, JAMESSUCKLING.COM

"A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, aged for approximately 18 months in oak barriques, 35% new, the 2018 Domaine de Chevalier has a deep garnet-purple color, pouncing out of the glass with energetic scents of crushed blackcurrants, fresh, juicy blackberries and ripe plums, with suggestions of crushed rocks, bay leaves, unsmoked cigars and lavender. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with muscular black fruits, framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and great tension, finishing long and mineral laced. Give it another 4 years in bottle to flesh out and drink it over the next 25+ years."

95/100 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WINE ADVOCATE, March 2021
