Domaine de Chevalier 2005:
The Domaine de Chevalier is, like Talbot or Beychevelle, very regular. For us, this is one of the best quality - pleasure / price ratio in Pessac-Léognan, not to say the classified growths of Bordeaux. So if you don't know him, go for it!
Dark red color, intense.
Typical Chevalier nose with powerful aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon mixed with resinous and menthol aromas. Ripe fruit and fresh leather add to the complexity.
Rich, silky and pulpy palate, very pure and precise, dominated by very elegant fruitiness. Ample development with a great concentration of fruit and fine and very tasty noble tannins. Creamy, fresh, fruity and very long finish. Perfect balance between concentration, great minerality and freshness, in a pure and elegant style.
Something more exists in this vintage, an extra soul, an extraordinary radiance, an almost magical touch.
Tasted in November 2021, this knight's estate has incredible finesse. We found a style similar to that of the Grange des Pères tasted shortly before. Very fine tannins, and aromas of ripe red berries. A marvel to open at least three hours before tasting.
