Domaine de Chevalier 2016

 Incl. VAT & DPA case of 12 Bottles (75cl)

A refined Graves classified Growth

Domaine de Chevalier is the culmination of old vines, beautiful Cabernet and Merlot. Domaine de Chevalier 2016 has an ink-like colour with blue highlights. Its magnificent aromatic tension is pure and complex. The Pessac-Leognan's aromatic palate is diverse with scents of black fruitsbalsamic notes and a minerality that alludes to graphite. In the mouth, the attack is precisedynamic, and powerful. An example of concentrated elegance. The tannins are smooth, with a fruity finish. A wine with a lot of style. A true success

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Domaine de Chevalier is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it rocks up with expressive warm plums, blueberry compote and cassis scents with suggestions of sandalwood, baking spices and potpourri. Medium-bodied and delicately styled yet with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins, it sports restrained earth-laced fruit and a long finish.
