Domaine de Chevalier 2009

Domaine de Chevalier

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 98.0

Well known for creating spectacular red and white wines, Domaine de Chevalier is an acclaimed Graves estate that can trace its history back centuries. For the red wine, 35 hectares of vineyard are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (c.55%), Merlot (c.40%) and Cabernet Franc (c.5%) on a terroir of gravel over black sandy clay and hardpan soil. Its oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines are over 50 years of age, pre-dating the Bernard family who purchased the estate in 1983. The final blend is matured in 50% new oak barriques. As of 2021 the vineyard has been farmed using 100% biodynamic farming techniques. The estate was certified 100% biodynamic in 2023.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Domaine de Chevalier ‘09 has a very refined, very pure, almost understated nose that blossoms with aeration. There is wonderful delineation and precision here, although none of the dials are turned up to max. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe, silky smooth tannins and a delightful citrus fresh finish. Superb. Tasted January 2013.

Crimson hue. Subtle dark-fruit and smoky notes. Juicy and fresh on the palate, the tannins extremely fine. Hint of blackcurrant. Harmonious. Joyful and appealing now but will hold. (JL)
