ABOUT THE WINE
Located in Léognan, Domaine de Chevalier can be dated back to 1783, and likely existed as a property well before then. It was purchased by the Bernard distilling company in 1983, and produces exceptional red (80% of their production) and dry white wines. Their second-wines offer excellent value and are more approachable in their youth than the grand vin.
Soft and approachable. Pretty aromas of ripe red fruit, with fine, silky tannin on the palate and bright, fresh acidity. Superbly enjoyable now, yet not without ageing capacity - this will develop beautifully over the next decade.
Great with red meat and roast vegetables - consider this for the first summer barbecue.
From late August a period of sunny weather resurrected the waning fortunes of the 2014 vintage, allowing the grapes to reach optimal ripeness and providing perfect conditions for the harvest.
