Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2005 (1500ml)

$225

A glorious wine from Domaine de Chevalier, this 2005 reveals notes of graphite, subtle charcoal, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, silky tannins, and a long, multi-dimensional finish. This is a killer effort from the Bernard family, who own this famous terroir in Pessac-Leognan. Drink it over the next 20-30 years. Robert Parker

45+ minutes open in the bottle. Dark cherry color. Nose filled with black cherry, tobacco, and subtle French terroir. Cherry, caramel, and tar on the palate. Tastes like candy! Lacks power and tannins as the Merlot dominates. Very long finish. Very similar to the 2005 Chateau Dassault but twice the price. Definitely drink sooner rather than later. Unfortunately I just bought 2 bottles of the 2000 and am concerned, especially since 2005 was such an awesome vintage.

17.5/20 (93/100) Вино с уже развившимся букетом ароматов чернослива, черешни, чёрных лесных ягод, шоколада, гвоздики, кожи и сухой шерсти. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и бархатистыми, чуть липкими танинами. Продолжительное послевкусие. Отлично!

Classic Pessac L., near the top of the range and near its top form too. Very nice now. Better with more age? Maybe. But why wait?

This wine needs to be decanted as it got better out of the bottle. Very good balance with complex flavors

Wow, rarely do we finish a bottle in one go anymore. This one was! Intensity, depth and fruit well balanced Some years of improvement left, 5+?
