2019 DOMAINE DE CHEVALIER

GRAND CRU CLASSE DE GRAVES

“Lots of intensity and complexity here, as always.” (on 2019 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge)

96-97 POINTS - JAMES SUCKLING

Domaine de Chevalier is on a fantastic run of vintages in recent years and remainsone of the most popular choices during En Primeur thanks to its fantastic price to quality ratio. It is also one of only a handful of Chateaux that can produce both exceptional white and red wines from the Grand Cru Classe vineyards of Pessac-Leognan. Its white wine is often one of the finest produced in Bordeaux

2018 is certainly a hard act to follow - declared by many critics as the finest vintage ever made at the property. Given how quickly the 2018s sold out, we anticipate a similar uptake with the 2019s.

High density planting from a secluded single 45-hectare plot with rich gravel soils has always best suited Cabernet Sauvignon, making up two thirds of the plot. The 2019 red is ripe and concentrated, but defined by an elegance and freshness in the tannins. It has a very pure fruit character, plenty of finesse and a long, sustained finish. It is quite different to the 2018 - not as opulent, more restrained and elegant.

2019 DOMAINE DE CHEVALIER BLANC

Whilst the majority of the wine made at Domaine de Chevalier is red, its 6.5 hectare plot designated to white wine production is one of Graves finest expressions of Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blends. The white wine spends 18 months in barrel, aged on its lees, providing a wine with fantastic textural breadth and nervy tension. In 2019 the white wine has great opulent richness and a beautiful pristine fruit character. Beautiful caramelised sultanas and lifted citrus oil notes, the palate is refreshing and generous. But it is the retention of energy, intensity and textural finesse that makes this wine so fantastic.

"The chocolate, walnut, dark-fruit and stone character is attractive. It’s full-bodied and very tight and linear with chewy yet polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Lots of intensity and complexity here, as always."

"This is an opulent, dense white with dried-apple and honey character. Salty and hot-stone notes, too. Full-bodied, round and phenolic. Formed and beautiful. Quite open. Intense length."
