Description

** 90-92 Points - Robert Parker **

This 2004 vintage bordeaux wine is a strong effort from consultant Stephane Derenoncourt, the 2004 Domaine de Chevalier (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, and equal parts Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is a classic Graves revealing a deep ruby/purple color, smoky, scorched earth, and graphite-like notes, and copious quantities of black currant and sweet cherry fruit. This heady, medium-bodied, elegant claret possesses the potential to develop into an exceptionally complex wine. It represents pure finesse married with impressive substance and texture.

Condition

Level in neck. Scratched label - vintage year missing but label otherwise good. Taken from case of 2004 Chevalier.
