2008 Chevalier Domaine De
|Vineyard:||Domaine de Chevalier|
|Varietal:||Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend|
SParker review: Domaine de Chevalier's 2008 is one of the finest wines made at this estate overthe last three decades, (60% Cab. Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and the restPetit Verdot and Cab. Franc). The most noticeable thing is that consultantStephane Derenoncourt has drastically cut back the influence of new oak, or atleast its ability to intrude on the aromatics and flavors. This beautifullytextured, dense purple-colored 2008 exhibits notes of graphite, spring flowers,and blue as well as red fruits in an elegant, full-bodied, flavorful, layeredmouthfeel. The freshness of the vintage, read more...combined with low yields has giventhis cuvee an atypical density and richness that is largely unprecedente (hide)
