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.

94(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , February 2013

(a blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 6% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc; 13.3% alcohol):  Saturated medium-deep ruby.  Rather backward but extremely complex nose hints at cassis, blackberry, graphite, minerals and spices.  Sweet, broad and rich, with enticing fresh minerality giving energy to the rather ripe, full-bodied cassis and spice flavors.  Finishes perfumed and very long, with wonderfully lush, supple, fine-grained tannins and an almost decadent floral element.  This is still a baby and one of the greatest young Domaine de Chevalier rouge wines I have ever tasted.  It will outlive most of us:  don't touch a bottle before 2018.
