Domaine de Chevalier 2012

Pessac-Léognan, Graves, Bordeaux, FranceFragrant dried herbs mark the nose along with a sweet note of black fruits. The attack is firm and dry with fairly grippy tannins at this stage albeit in balance with the fruit. There is a fine purity of fruit mixed with licorice and lead pencil notes. The finish is long and elegant with a touch of tobacco, wet earth and tannin. Nothing five years won’t round out. It’s a fair price.Tasted: 03 October 2015Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 90.00 AB 104.00 private wine shops Producer: Château Domaine de ChevalierDistributors: British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch
