Domaine de Chevalier 2010

Domaine de Chevalier

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 96.0

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.

Somewhat like the white of the same vintage, this is a taut wine, but time in glass yields impressive, cool,blueberry fruit that tastes more youthful than its age. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the palate with vivid blackcurrant, graphite and tannic power. Give it another decade and it will gain in complexity and interest.

This is one of my all-time favorite wines from Domaine de Chevalier, a silky, rather classic Pessac-Leognan with notes of scorched earth, tobacco leaf and black and red currants, but no hard edges. Fragrant, complex aromatics are followed by a savory, expansively flavored wine made from a final blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine hit 13.5% natural alcohol, which must certainly be among the highest they have ever achieved, even eclipsing the 2009. An opulent, precocious style of wine that seems much more developed, complex and delicious than I thought from barrel, this beauty can be drunk in 5-6 years or cellared for 20 or more.
