Buyer Review
  1. Geoff Pattison
    65% Cabernet, 30% Merlot, 5% PV. A really well defined nose of fresh coffee, crushed mineral and earth. Focused on the entry with dark fruit flavors that build and build on the palate to a long finish. Stunning definition. This classic estate just keeps getting better, they are making fantastic wines without any artifice and the price is still very fair. If you seek purity, elegance and transparency of terroir in your wines, this is for you.

    The 2015 Domaine de Chevalier is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. It went through malolactic and aging on its lees during three months in 35% new, 35% one-year-old and 30% two-year-old barrels, with a total aging of 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it has lovely spiciness on the noseChinese five spice and black pepperwith a core of red and black cherries and smoked meats. Medium-bodied, finely crafted and refreshing, it's quite minerally in the mouth and persistent on the finish. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

    One of the stars of the vintage, the 2015 Domaine de Chevalier has turned out even better than I expected. Bright floral notes give striking aromatic lift to the rich, sumptuous fruit. A marvelously complete wine, the 2015 is racy and silky on the palate, yet also has tremendous freshness. Bright red cherry, blood orange, white pepper, spice and dried flowers build into the super-expressive finish. The 2015 has been nothing less than stunning the three times I have tasted it so far. This is a tremendous showing from proprietor Olivier Bernard and his team. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Tasted three times. -Antonio Galloni, Vinous
