Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Leognan 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

* *_2011 Bordeaux Futures. Delivery due autumn 2014._*"*_A very good effort_* from this estate located in the southern sector of Pessac-Leognan, the 2011 Domaine de Chevalier is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot that achieved 13% natural alcohol. It offers medium body, attractive sweet red and black currant fruit, a round, supple texture, and hints of roasted herbs and damp earth. Drink this pretty, elegant effort during its first 10-15 years of life." *--Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (87-89 pts)** *_We'll notify on arrival, autumn 2014._*

This is something of a paradox for such an excellent wine, among the greatest in Bordeaux . Only a great terroir can produce a great wine... I often start out with these words when speaking about Domaine de Chevalier.

They improve their already considerable skills year after year on behalf of that which is most essential to a fine wine in my opinion — balance. Read less
