> 1978 Domaine de Chevalier - Pessac Léognan Graves, Bordeaux, France

1978 Domaine de Chevalier: The hue still looks quite young. Very ripe and fruity nose with light tertiary flavours: underwood, black truffle, lead pencil. This beautiful 1978 Domaine de Chevalier has a round and totally integrated body. Good density. Slightly fading finish. Excellent mature bottle currently at its top. 1978 Domaine de Chevalier was getting even better after one hour in the glass. 90/100 

> White - 2001 Domaine de Chevalier - Pessac Léognan Graves, Bordeaux, France

2007 April -  Beautiful yellow colour. Notes of pineapple, hazel nuts and citrus fruits. Pleasant vanilla and fruit flavours. Together fat and crisp texture underlined by a beautiful mineral note.. Complex and long, 2001 Domaine de Chevalier fills the mouth for almost one minute. A remarkable sauvignon wine!

> 2001 Domaine de Chevalier - Pessac Léognan Graves, Bordeaux, France

2001 Domaine de Chevalier : Ruby color with crimson reflections on the rim. Fine flavours of red fruits, blackcurrant and raspberries with a spicy note. The woody vanilla flavours of 2001 Domaine de Chevalier, very present 4 years ago, seem to have well integrated today. Beautiful fruity and expressive palate, quite dense and balanced with a good amplitude. Excellent minerality which bodes well with the purity of the fruit. The finish is a bit with disconcerting with an herbaceous taste and peppery tannins which seem to indicate a slight lack of maturity. Average depth. Its a shame otherwise 2001 Domaine de Chevalier would be a splendid wine. 88/100
