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.

88? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - February 2013

(a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 5% petit verdot and 5% cabernet franc; 13% alcohol):  Deep ruby.  Blackcurrant, camphor and a peppery note on the nose, plus a hint of a green streak.  Suave in texture but peppery and simple in the mouth, with a leafy, herbal quality and a general lack of fruit suggesting only moderate ripeness.  Turns a bit dry on the back.  Some might like this wine's autumnal, herbal personality more than I did; perhaps I caught it at an awkward stage.  In fairness, the vast majority of critics have scored this wine highly.
