Tasting Note:

If Olivier Bernard's Domaine de Chevalier Rouge has been pushed into third place by Smith Haut Lafitte and Haut Bailly in 2009 and 2010, it has turned the tables in 2011. This definitely has the edge over its rivals, with more juicy fruit and better extraction. Produced from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, notes of herbs, bramble and sweet red berries bound from the glass. There is an old fashioned classism here, but it really is so charming and one falls in love with the juicy, enticing character and the grippy tannins. Solidly made and will enthral people who like proper Claret.
