Domaine de Chevalier 2013
After all these years, what continues to impress us is the fruit freshness that added to the classic style of liquorice, menthol and fresh minerals, and the class and balance on the palate. With a chalky finish, there is adequate concentration, power and finesse—the elegant tannins for this excellent and long wine.
Scores and comments are impressive, such as:
WE95. This beautiful wine is fresh with acidity and structured with a mineral texture. Layers of creamy citrus and white fruit flavours accompany well-integrated wood ageing touches. It's a wine to drink for its freshness soon, although it will also benefit from several years of ageing. It will be best from 2018. Edited.
VindeVerte95. The nose is fruity, floral and spicy. The palate is fruity, fleshy, and complex, with good volume and a beautiful structure. The attack reveals a beautiful smoothness. The mouth reveals a beautiful and precise aroma of ripe black fruits, highlighted by some spicy and woody notes. The tannins are well integrated. Good length. The finish is fruity and tannic—a very "gourmand" wine. Edited.
