A disturbing pattern appears to be emerging with recent offerings from this chateau. After bottling, the wines are fruitless, ferociously tannic, and completely out of balance. Even the white Domaine de Chevalier seems to be missing the great intensity of flavor and ripeness that one expects from this renowned estate in Pessac-Leognan. A shockingly high oak component obliterates any attempt at discerning the level of fruit that might be present. Yes, the wine is backward, yes, it is light-bodied, yes, the wine hints at having some minerality, but where's the weight, ripeness, and fruit intensity? Feb 1997, www.robertparker.com
