Chevalier Domaine De 2008

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Lilac, tar and cassis bush aromas are followed by a broad swath of mulled plum, black currant and maduro tobacco. The strong, mineral- and tar-filled spine drives through the finish, which picks up a smoldering edge. Drink now through 2018.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Chevalier, Domaine de 750ml

One of the fabulous sleepers of the vintage and a wine for serious Bordeaux afficionados to consider buying, the 2008 is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 9% Petit Verdot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol. Surprisingly backward for ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Chevalier, Domaine de 750ml
