A refined Graves classified Growth

Domaine de Chevalier is the culmination of old vines, beautiful Cabernet and Merlot. Domaine de Chevalier 2016 has an ink-like color with purple highlights. Its magnificent aromatic tension is pure and complex. The Pessac-Leognan's aromatic palate is diverse with scents of black fruits, balsamic notes and a minerality that alludes to graphite. In the mouth, the attack is precise, dynamic, and powerful. An example of concentrated elegance. The tannins are smooth, with a black fruit on the finish. A wine with a lot of style. A true success

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Domaine de Chevalier is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot picked between 4-21 October at 45 hectoliters per hectare, and matured in 35% new oak. Oh yes! This is a perfumed bouquet that unfolds beautifully in the glass with blackberry, cedar, smoke and a light marine influence, not unlike Japanese nori. The palate is medium-bodied with such fine tannins that it bought to mind Burgundy rather than Bordeaux. There is a grainy texture here, quite saline in the mouth with an entrancing sense of symmetry, very classic but not austere on the finish, with a long and saline aftertaste. This is an outstanding Domaine de Chevalier from the busiest man in Bordeaux, Oliver Bernard. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
