Domaine de Chevalier, classified Grand Cru Classe de Graves is one of the most important wine estates in Pessac-Léognan Bordeaux and has a reputation of making good wines even in average vintages. Its style is more elegance, finesse and purity than power, but never light or simple.
Dense, purple colour, sweet red and black currants, menthol, liquorice, subtle flowers and well-integrated, toasty oak on the palate. Impressively rich and medium to full-bodied without losing the elegance and finesse and very long finish. The tannins are sweet enough to drink it young but it can stay at least until 2040. A classic Bordeaux.
