Wine Details




Wine Description

An admirably concise way of describing a great wine. It conveys not only the idea of exceptional quality, but also of finesse, balance, elegance, and complexity." Olivier Bernard, proprietor. 2006: "Another wine from this estate that's in harmony and balanced, especially for the vintage, with lots of currant and raspberry character and just a hint of dark chocolate. Full, medium tannins and a fresh finish. All together.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) Olivier Bernard has crafted two of the wines of the vintage: Domaine de
Chevalier's Rouge and Blanc. By reducing his crop through rigorous green
harvesting and later removing leaves to expose the grapes to the Indian
summer's sun, he provided winemaker Stéphane Derenoncourt with the perfect
ingredient with which to work. Their red wine exhibits intoxicating Graves
minerality and terroir with a ripe black fruit core. The very long finish
suggests that a little patience will be required for this wine, read more...but it
undoubtedly rivals wines at four times its price. (hide)
