Parker calls Domaine de Chevalier 2010 one of his "all-time favorite wines" from the estate. He lauds the wines "notes of scorched earth, tobacco leaf and black and red currants" calling its aromas "fragrant, complex." Domaine de Chevalier 2010 has an "opulent, precocious style" and is a luxurious blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Parker advises, "this beauty can be drunk in 5-6 years or cellared for 20 or more." Gaining 2 points from its original score, Domaine de Chevalier 2010 is one of the true starts of the Pessac-Léognan vintage

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is one of my all-time favorite wines from Domaine de Chevalier, a silky, rather classic Pessac-Leognan with notes of scorched earth, tobacco leaf and black and red currants, but no hard edges. Fragrant, complex aromatics are followed by a savory, expansively flavored wine made from a final blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine hit 13.5% natural alcohol, which must certainly be among the highest they have ever achieved, even eclipsing the 2009. An opulent, precocious style of wine that seems much more developed, complex and delicious than I thought from barrel, this beauty can be drunk in 5-6 years or cellared for 20 or more.
