Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac Leognan, Bordeaux, 2013
85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot with 15 months in oak
The 2013 Domaine de Chevalier has a refined bouquet, laid back and languorous with blackberry, briary notes, a touch of bay leaf developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, quite edgy tannin, nicely balanced and fresh with a simple but harmonious finish. It's the kind of 2013 that you'll just enjoy as a fine Claret, leaving you with a smile on your face. This constitutes a very commendable effort in such a challenging vintage, the bottom line being that it is one of the most pleasurable releases in 2013." Neal Martin 90/100 robertparker.com
"Colour of black cherries. Dark fruited and spicy. Firm, chewy but sweet and scented on the mid palate. It is a bit lean but has more going for it than most of the Pessac 2013s tasted today." Julia Harding MW 16.5/20 jancisrobinson.com
