Domaine de Chevalier Rouge 91 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

91–93 Points, Wine Enthusiast (Barrel Sample): "This is a richly textured wine, with powerful wood tannins that are balanced by the rich fruits. It is dense and full of blackberry flavor, finishing with juicy, fresh acidity." 91-92 Points, James Suckling: Spice and tobacco character with berry and coffee undertones. Medium to full body, silky tannins. Seamless and integrated for the vintage. 04/14

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... 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

Domaine de Chevalier was reputed to be among the best picks of 2013 - a sub-par vintage - and it does reach to the skies; the scent is of rich, ripe cherries cut on a metal board, and the entry is similarly metallic and rich in red and black fruit with some cedar shank and oak tannin. Finish is long and indicates some aging potential - although fine right now. 90.
