Tasting Note:

If the form guide is anything to go by, then 2019 Domaine de Chevalier should be a firm favourite. Olivier Bernard has followed his exceptional 2018 with another spectacular wine. Typically understated, he describes it as “classic, ripe, elegant and suave”. It’s all that and some. Intense cassis, hints of gravel, incense, dandelions, creme de mûre and hedgerow fruit leap from the glass, laced with notes of sweet raspberries and strawberries. Then swaths of pure, long, seductive dark cherry fruit coat the palate. There’s a wonderful fluidity and energy. The silky texture, glossy, heady liqueur fruit is counterbalanced by a savoury, dark finish with notes of bitter chocolate, salt flakes, liquorice and spice. This is a mighty impressive, cohesive Domaine de Chevalier with lingering notes of gorgeous pure cassis fruit and chocolate. Bravo. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. 13% vol.
