Domaine de Chevalier Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Pessac-Léognan Pessac-Leognan 2006
Owner Olivier Bernard's attitude to nature and wine, working the soil naturallyand respecting the terroir and the style of the vintage, makes him a Burgundianat heart according to Jasper Morris MW, which is praise indeed. 2006 was aCabernet vintage in Pessac, according to Olivier, and the extra Cabernet in hisblend (67% CS and 4% CF) has made his 2006 more structured than usual. It hasan exotic, creamy blackberry nose, a wonderful harmony and structure, and alovely concentration of pure, minerally cassis fruit with coffee hints. This isanother tour de force of outstanding quality. Drink: 2012-2025.<br/>

A beautiful nose, dark fruits, tea and spices, a tad of integrated oak, coats the mouth well, nice mid palate and length. Has nice acidity and tannins that are silk and firm. This wine is well crafted, and often a true pleasure.
équilibré, rond, subtil, long, tout en finesse mais léger, manque de punch, de puissance
