Domaine de Chevalier 1997

Complex and refined, a seductive Pessac-Léognan red wine

The producer

Owned by the Bernard family since 1983, the beautiful Domaine de Chevalier is among the finest Bordeaux Crus Classés. This iconic estate is located in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, to the south of Bordeaux, and is surrounded by a green haven.

The vineyard

Domaine de Chevalier overlooks a rare 50-hectare vineyard dedicated to the production of red wine. The vineyard lies on a gravelly soil with a clay and gravel subsoil.

The vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand in small crates and are rigorously sorted in the vineyard, then in the cellar before and after destemming. The vinification is carried out in a plot-by-plot manner in two vats (one of which is a concrete tulip-shaped tank). The wine is aged in barrels (1/3 of which are new) for 16 to 18 months, with regular stirring of the lees during the first 4 months.

The blend

Domaine de Chevalier 1997 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).

The tasting

Colour

Brilliant, with a beautiful dark ruby colour.

Nose

Ethereal and intense, the nose combines ripe fruit fragrances (plum) with advanced aromas of black truffles, graphite, spices as well as smoky and liquorice notes.

Palate

Full, this wine seduces the palate with its melted tannins and its silky feel. Very elegant, the palate reveals a beautiful fruity expression, leading to a fresh and persistent finish.
