Tasting Notes Domaine de Chevalier 2008

93

One of the fabulous sleepers of the vintage and a wine for serious Bordeaux afficionados to consider buying, the 2008 is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 9% Petit Verdot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol. Surprisingly backward for a 2008, it is medium to full-bodied with moderate tannins, lots of purity and abundant charcoal, black currant and floral notes. The sweetness of the fruit, depth of flavor and textured, lush mouthfeel in this medium to full-bodied, ageworthy 2008 are impressive. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades. I would not be surprised if it turns out to be as impressive as the 2010.

I really enjoy this  rich and round wine, with subtle plum, tobacco and game aromas and flavors. Full and softly textured with lots of fruit and a caressing finish. Velvety tannins. So much chocolate too. Best after 2012.

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. The Domaine de Chevalier 2008 has a very pretty bouquet with precise dark cherry, briary and vanilla-tinged fruit that is almost Margaux-like. The palate is medium-bodied with sinewy tannins. It is a little rugged and tough on the finish, which influenced my rather mean score, but it settled nicely in the glass and I am certain will be a very sound wine. Tasted January 2012.
