Domaine de Chevalier, Grand Cru Classé Pessac Léognan, 2015

Tasting Note:

If you thought we've been a bit disparaging about the Pessac Leognan appellation, this should balance things out a bit. In addition to the wonderful range at Haut Brion, Domaine de Chevalier, Smith Haut Lafitte and Haut Bailly have also got it spot on. Olivier Bernard has transformed Domaine de Chevalier during his tenure. In the early days, an ambitious re-planting program was undertaken, which took many years before the fruits of his labours could be enjoyed. Now the estate is in superb heath and it seems that Olivier can turn out a great red and white vintage after vintage. The 2015 is gorgeous; a profound yet reserved Domaine de Chevalier that reveals itself slowly. Initially it is understated with notes of smoky cassis. As it opens up, it displays damsons and raspberry liqueur fruit. It is subtle wine of charm and sophistication with a latent power that will help it to age gracefully for decades. Produced from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% merlot and 5% Petit Verdot and cropped at 35 hl/ha.
