About Domaine de Chevalier
Domaine de Chevalier was relatively late to arrive on the Bordeaux wine scene. In 1865, when Arnaud and Jean Ricard acquired this small property on the outskirts of the Lande pine forest, it was in disrepair. Today, the vineyard has more than doubled in size from its original 20 acres.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2006
($35) Full red. Plum, tobacco, leather, cedar and smoked meat on the nose. Fresh and aromatic in the mouth, with impressive retention of fruit for this superripe vintage. The flavors of red plum, tobacco, cocoa, mocha and spices really caress the palate. A spicy, firmly tannic but round midweight, with suave tannins and very good freshness for the year.
