Domaine de Chevalier Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

No wonder Olivier Bernard was beaming. His 2007 is the latest in a line ofstunning vintages which, apart from the amazing 2005, is his best wine since2000. A brooding, spicy, damson nose leads on to a dense palate withblackberry, crushed cassis, tobacco and leather with a long, pure finish. Thebalanced, mouth-filling fruit is cloaked in velvety but significant tannins(higher than 2005) bestowing the wine with a fine, masculine, early-drinkingstyle. Fantastic in the context of any vintage, and not far off the quality ofHaut-Brion, this is an essential buy for any Claret-lover this year.

Domaine De Chevalier:
Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact, Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. 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...

Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact, Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. 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 convey our fundamental philosophy, not only with regard to viticulture, but also the spirit that pervades the estate, and the men and women who work here. 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

Smoky, oaky nose, a touch stemmy with blackberry jam over cedary toast – good wild berry fruit up front, nice balance, soft tannin, good acid, tannins are a bit peppery, good length, crisp fruit on finish, hint of bitter tannin (87-88)

Purple color of normal intensity. Aromatic and fruity nose with a nice smell of hazelnut red fruit and leather. The palate is well built pulpy on entry mellow in the middle and tasty. Finishing up on coated tannins with a hint of vividness in the persistence. Good length. A success of the vintage. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

Bright, pale, green-tinged yellow. Explosively sappy, perfumed nose offers fresh apricot, grapefruit peel, flowers and spices. Dense yet weightless in the mouth, with wonderfully silky sweetness to the gripping flavors of lemon, flowers and spices. A... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Domaine de Chevalier 750ml
