Domaine de Chevalier 1996

Bordeaux - Pessac-Leognan - Red - 12° Domaine de Chevalier Domaine de Chevalier 1996 1072/96
  • Parker : 90
  • J. Robinson : 17,5
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the château, the 1996 Domaine de Chevalier certainly surpassed my expectations even though I would caution that I think Olivier Bernard has made better vintages since then. Deep in color, the nose is quite captivating with black fruit, brine and crushed stone. I like the strictness here -- very 1996 in style. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a svelte texture. The bead of acidity lends this tension although I found that finish surprisingly backward and just lacked that peacock's tail that would have warranted a higher score. Of course, there is a chance that this could come with time because it is undeniably very well balanced and pure. It just needs a bit more ... ambition. Tasted July 2016.
