Domaine de Chevalier 2022

Domaine de Chevalier

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 99.0

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.

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc. 40 hl/ha. In conversion to organic management. Special label with a Chinese drawing of a horse to celebrate Olivier Bernard’s 40th vintage. Cask sample. Deep crimson. Intensely mineral, highly distinctive, nose. Very different from the sweet fruit-bombs elsewhere. Racy and likely to age well in the Dom de Chevalier tradition. Sinewy but by no means meagre. Very much its own style. Cool and fresh but with fruit that is quite ripe enough and massively mineral. Intense with lots tucked in there for future development. Clean, fresh, appetising finish.

Showing how its done in 2022, Domaine de Chevalier comes in strong with a deep ruby red colour, a vibrant rim, smoked oak on the nose, edges of tar, red roses, liquorice root, and a confident delivery of full-on tannic architecture that frames the cassis and bilberry fruit. Delivers vintage signature in a carefully controlled way, with enough slate, pummice stone, mint and eucalyptus to balance things out and slow down delivery. The fruits are fully ripe, heading towards baked plum and fig, but met step by step with a corresponding cooling flavour. 40th harvest of Olivier Bernard (meaning a special label).
