1983 Domaine de Chevalier

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



The 1983 is the finest Domaine de Chevalier of the last 15 years. The wine was tannic and hard in its youth, but the tannin has melted away, resulting in a classic example of the elegance, authoritative sweetness, and compelling complexity this estate can achieve. The knock-out nose of tobacco, sweet black fruits, smoke, licorice, and roasted herbs is intense. In the mouth, this wine is fleshy and medium-bodied, with an expansive, savory mouthfeel. There are no hard edges as all the tannin has become beautifully integrated into this opulently textured, seductive, luscious Domaine de Chevalier. Anticipated maturity: Now-2005. Last tasted 10/97. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1
