Domaine de Chevalier Rouge Pessac-Leognan Bottle 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Domaine de Chevalier always seems to know how to please. The 2008 has a<br/>fantastic, opulent nose of liquid blackcurrants and a concentrated, intense<br/>palate of dark cassis fruit but with that lovely freshness indicative of the<br/>vintage. This is a wine with plenty of flesh on its bones, but one which<br/>combines power with grace and balance. Ripe, grainy tannins and a savoury,<br/>mineral finish complete this very rewarding wine.

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
