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.

89-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

Deep, fully saturated ruby-purple.  Blackberry, minerals, graphite and herbs on the nose, with added punch delivered by peppery spices.  Sweet, supple and nicely concentrated, if with a bit less density and complexity than in recent top vintages, such as 2009 and 2010.  Lovely black cherry and blueberry flavors display a tangy sweetness.  The very long finish features dusty, fine-grained tannins and a clean mineral overlay.  A little more concentration and I would have scored this wine much higher.
