99-point Domaine de Chevalier
18 February 2021

We fell head over heels for Olivier Bernard’s magnificent 2018 Domaine de Chevalier. Enticing and welcoming from the off, this mixes gravelly, mineral-infused dark fruit with a gorgeous floral perfume and hints of cigar smoke. The mid-palate has plenty of gravitas, with layer after layer of sumptuous fruit, all perfectly integrated with enveloping tannins, which – much like Olivier’s legendary lunches – go on and on… and on. In short, it was and is one of the great buys from the 2018 vintage. It’s a wine that harnesses the natural power of this “solaire” growing season and retains its hallmark finesse and charm. James Suckling is also smitten, awarding it a near perfect 99 out of 100. “The intensity and perfumes on the nose are extremely impressive, offering pure blackberries and violets, as well as bark, wild-mushroom and raw-tile notes. It’s full-bodied with creamy tannins that envelop the wine and a gorgeous, subtly complex center palate with all the flavors found on the nose. Endless finish. Love the finesse and length to this. Greatest ever. 65% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 5% petit verdot. Try after 2026. 99/100”.    Read More
