Tasting Notes

A cool and markedly restrained nose only grudgingly reveals its notes of mineral reduction, essence of Granny Smith apples, acacia blossom and a lovely array of spice elements. The tightly wound and almost painfully intense middle weight plus flavors are stony to the point that the palate feel is akin to rolling small pebbles around in the mouth, all wrapped in an explosively long finish. This is an aristocratic Chevalier that somehow manages to gracefully combine overt power and a taut muscularity with Zen-like harmony. This too is a definite 'wow' wine.
