2014 Pessac-Leognan Cru Classé from Bordeaux

This 2014 Pessac-Leognan Domaine de Chevalier offers an elegant and fresh nose. It gives off fleshy black fruit fragrances on a certain tension. On swirling, the nose is enhanced by delicate woody balsamic (cedar) hints. The attack of this Cru Classé from Graves is bold. The mid-palate is ample on a tannic structure with noble sap. The finish is persistent and fruity. It is a straight and harmonious wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier has a wonderful bouquet with pure blackberry, raspberry coulis and iodine-tinged aromas that seem to envelop the senses. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, superb acidity and a sense of symmetry that is uncommon in the 2014 vintage. This is a sophisticated, precise wine from Olivier Bernard that could be one of top wines of the vintage. There is an approachability to this Domaine de Chevalier, which you do not always find, however I would be inclined to give this 3-4 years in bottle.
