Description

The Domaine de Chevalier 2014 is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and 30% Merlot. It has a fragrant bouquet with blackberry, black plum, cigar ash and woodland scents, complex though not as intense as its white counterpart. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy, quite firm tannin that underpin a classic Domaine de Chevalier that has just the right amount of austerity at this stage. Reserved perhaps, but it is beautifully knitted together with a lovely bay leaf tinged finish. Quintessential Domaine de Chevalier...which is what we all want. Neal Martin- Wine Advocate- Aug 2015

Château Domaine de Chevalier stands as an iconic wine estate located in the Pessac-Léognan appellation within Bordeaux, France. With origins dating back to the 17th century, the estate boasts a rich history of winemaking excellence. Its 45 hectares of vineyards benefit from a diverse terroir of gravel, clay, and limestone soils, ideally suited for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot for red wines, as well as Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon for whites. Classified as a Grand Cru Classé in the Graves Classification of 1953, and for both red and white wines in the 1959 Classification of Graves, Domaine de Chevalier consistently produces wines of exceptional quality and finesse. The red wines are known for their depth, complexity, and aging potential, while the white wines exhibit elegance, freshness, and a vibrant minerality. Under the stewardship of the Bernard family since 1983, the estate remains committed to sustainable viticulture and meticulous winemaking practices, ensuring that each bottle reflects the essence of its prestigious terroir and heritage.

Reviews

The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier has a wonderful bouquet with pure blackberry, raspberry coulis and iodine-tinged aromas that seem to envelop the senses. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, superb acidity and a sense of symmetry that is uncommon in the 2014 vintage. This is a sophisticated, precise wine from Olivier Bernard that could be one of top wines of the vintage. There is an approachability to this Domaine de Chevalier, which you do not always find, however I would be inclined to give this 3-4 years in bottle. Neal Martin- 93 pts-- Wine Advocate march 2017
