Tasting Notes

Abundant notes of sandy, loamy soil, forest floor, black currants, cherries, and unsmoked high-class cigar tobacco jump from the glass of this complex, perfumed Pessac-Leognan. Medium-bodied and lighter than many 2000s, it has resolved all of its tannin, and appears to have reached full maturity. This wine has such superb balance that I suspect it will last another 8-10 years.

Score: 91Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (189), June 2010

Score: 90Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

The finest Domaine de Chevalier in over a decade, this opaque purple-colored effort exhibits abundant character with its striking aromatic profile of burning coals, plums, currants, tobacco, and spice box. Some oak is present, but it is well-integrated in this rich, medium to full-bodied, elegant, pure 2000. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.
