    Deep, fully saturated ruby-purple. Blackberry, minerals, graphite and herbs on the nose, with added punch delivered by peppery spices. Sweet, supple and nicely concentrated, if with a bit less density and complexity than in recent top vintages, such as 2009 and 2010. Lovely black cherry and blueberry flavors display a tangy sweetness. The very long finish features dusty, fine-grained tannins and a clean mineral overlay. A little more concentration and I would have scored this wine much higher.

    Very floral and elegant with raspberry and blackcurrant fruit mixed with toasty oak/vanillin, followed by a medium to full-bodied, stylish, polished wine that is the quintessentially refined style of Pessac-Leognan. Nevertheless, the complexity and nuance has yet to fully emerge. This medium to full-bodied Domaine de Chevalier is poised for a bright future. It is tight and backward now, as well as restrained aromatically, but everything is there for the future. Forget it for 5-7 years and drink it over the following 30 years.
