Domaine De Chevalier Rouge 2019

Product description

Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. This is something of a paradox for such an excellent wine, among the greatest in Bordeaux.

Intense, fresh and refined nose, of red and black fruits. The aromas of black cherry, blackberry and blueberry dominate in an atmosphere of both peppery and sweet spices at the same time. Dense, delicate, delicious, and energetic palate. Magnificent finesse concentration. Tight and elegant weft. Sweet flavors of ripe fruit are intense, salivating and accompanied by a gustatory complexity very typical of this vintage. Humus, graphite and licorice. Great overall freshness. Impeccable and harmonious balance between the sweetness and liveliness of the different sensations.

97 Points - James Suckling

Beautiful, ripe redcurrants, bay leaf, violets and raspberries on the nose. Full-bodied with firm and very tight tannins that are polished and layered. Crushed stones highlight the beautiful blue fruit. Poised and refined. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 6% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc.

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Domaine de Chevalier is a magical wine in the making, wafting from the glass with aromas of wild plums, crushed blackcurrants and violets mingled with hints of pencil shavings, subtle spices and coniferous forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, with a vibrant core of fruit, beautifully refined tannins and lively acids, it's exquisitely elegant and harmonious, concluding with a long, perfumed finish. 

97 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot that saw just 35% new oak, it sports a dense purple hue as well as a killer, quintessential Graves bouquet of darker black fruits, scorched earth, truffle, cold fireplace, tobacco, and graphite. More medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has brilliant purity, ultra-fine tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish.

95+ Points - Wine Enthusiast

With its finely structured tannins and juicy black currant fruits, this has the potential to be an important wine. The balance between the fruit and structure is already there, promising richness as the wine matures.
