Chevalier Daviaud Puisseguin St Emillion 2006

Member Review by duncan 906:

Last weekend I visited the annual London France Show as I do every year.As usual I visited the Chateau Guillotin stand where I tasted and bought some wine.This year I bought a bottle of his Chevalier Daviaud which is exactly the same as his standard wine[80% merlot] which I reviewed for Snooth last year, except that it spends time in oak barrels.It was interesting to taste them both back to back.The Chateau owner explained that he called it Chevalier Daviaud in honour of one of his ancestors and the coat of arms on the label is a copy of one on the Chateau fireplace.I drank my bottle the other night with my supper of meat pie and have to report that it is absolutely beautiful,fruity and smooth,exactly how a good St.Emillion should be.

This property is owned by Jean Michel Moritz and it has been in his family since it was established in 1730.The wine is a typical St Emillion being 70% merlot 25% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon It is one beautiful claret.Each year Jean Michel Moritz comes to the London France Show where I have tasted his wines several times
