Domaine de Chevalier Rouge 2014

Vineyards

Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France

Winemaking and Maturation

Four vat-rooms, (steel, stainless steel, tulip concrete and wooden vats), to optimize the plot selection, perfect the extraction and refine the “assemblage”.

Barrel aging 16 to 20 months (35% new oak), bâtonnage 4 months (stirring the lees with a stick).

Tasting Notes

Deep colour, dark red, black in the middle, brilliant. Great nose, intense and distinctive. Flowery expression mainly on the fruit. Black cherry, blackcurrant, blueberry. Finely peppery and vanilla spices. Aromas of tannins and slightly peaty earth. On the palate, there is an impressive sensation of density, fleshy tannins and contained power. The flesh of the wine is fine, firm, fresh and fruity.

The high-class tannins recall the earthy and peaty flavour of great vintages to keep. The fruit is everywhere, intensely. Power, balance, maturity, concentration, length, freshness, tension. Everything is there for a great vintage to keep.
