Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Cru Classé de Graves Bordeaux Pessac-Léognan France Un Nez Original ... Vin Charmeur ! 2004
Olivier Bernard has crafted two of the wines of the vintage: Domaine de<br/>Chevalier's Rouge and Blanc. By reducing his crop through rigorous green<br/>harvesting and later removing leaves to expose the grapes to the Indian<br/>summer's sun, he provided winemaker StÃ©phane Derenoncourt with the perfect<br/>ingredient with which to work. Their red wine exhibits intoxicating Graves<br/>minerality and terroir with a ripe black fruit core. The very long finish<br/>suggests that a little patience will be required for this wine, but it<br/>undoubtedly rivals wines at four times its price.
