Tasting Notes Domaine de Chevalier 2005

94

This is really pure and fruity with flowers and stones. Full and dense, but still a bit tight. Not really giving much at the moment, but beautifully balanced and silky, and opening up to a long, long finish. This is excellent. Pull the cork after 2015.

Perhaps the finest wine made at this estate in many years (no doubt due to the influence of wine consulting guru Stephane Derenoncourt), the 2005 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot with tiny portions of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. A dark ruby/purple hue is followed by a classic Graves bouquet of charcoal, graphite, creosote, smoked herbs, sweet black cherries, and spice box. The wine is elegant on the attack, but fills out beautifully with a multilayered, rich mouthfeel, silky tannins, and a plush, opulent finish. This brilliant claret may turn out to be even better than my score suggests. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030+.

Tasted at BBR’s 2005/2009 tasting in London. This has great purity and exuberance on the nose, certainly one of the one more generous 2005’s with blackberry, raspberry sorbet, vanilla and a touch of black pepper. The oak is very well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied and just a little disjointed on the entry. It is underpinned by grippy tannins, a little dry and broody at the moment with a foursquare finish. This is a wine that seems to be enduring an “up and down” youth. I am sure it will sort itself out in the end. Tasted July 2011.
