2006 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Leognan
Domaine de Chevalier is a property on form, and one that remains under the radar; it offers exceptional value for money. This beautifully pure 2006 has the charm and fresh acidity that the best 2006s show, underpinned with a firm and unforced tannic structure. This is very well made indeed.
(Joss Fowler - BBR Fine Wine Sales Executive - 21-Oct-08)Domaine De Chevalier


Owner Olivier Bernard's attitude to nature and wine, working the soil naturallyand respecting the terroir and the style of the vintage, makes him a Burgundianat heart according to Jasper Morris MW, which is praise indeed. 2006 was aCabernet vintage in Pessac, according to Olivier, and the extra Cabernet in hisblend (67% CS and 4% CF) has made his 2006 more structured than usual. It hasan exotic, creamy blackberry nose, a wonderful harmony and structure, and alovely concentration of pure, minerally cassis fruit with coffee hints. This isanother tour de force of outstanding quality.

Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Leognan
The brilliant St.-Emilion-based consultant, Stephane Derenoncourt, is working his magic at this great vineyard in Leognan. The 2006.. is a revelation of sweet, lush, black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with subtle notes of scorched earth and barbecue spices. Round, luscious, sexy, and exceptionally complex, the wine is dominated by that smoky minerality that comes from this area. It is the quintessentially elegant yet substantial Pessac-Leognan with class, complexity, and potential. Despite wanting to drink most of the bottle when I was tasting it, I know it will be even better with 2-4 years of bottle age, and should keep for two decades.
