The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier has always been an impressive wine for the vintage. This has a superb bouquet with blackberry, graphite, sea spray and pressed roses, which are very well-defined and classy. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant, fine tannins, a keen line of acidity, fresh with white pepper and allspice towards the harmonious and precise finish. This is a Pessac-Léognan ratcheting through the gears - recommended. Tasted blind at the Southwold 10-Year-On tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, March 2024)

2014 vintage. This is the red. 65% Cab Sauv, 30% Merlot, 5% PV. Nose opened up after 45 mins with some sea salt, allspice, currant and cherry notes. Medium to medium+ body. Fairly plushy and cushioned on the finish. Tannins are there if you want ‘em but that Petit Verdot really steals the show at the end. A modicum of mint + baking chocolate make an appearance as well. Still clinging to a small paunch of baby fat which should fall off in another two years. The tumblers are clicking but the combination isn’t totally there just yet. Give it another 3-4 years but pretty dayum delish right now.

2014 vintage. This is the rouge. Last (proper bottle not compromised) tasted 3.2.23 (9.3). From Coravin. Lost the baby fat. Still medium/medium-heavy body but really starting to embrace and pump out leaner flavors. Underrated producer (the white doesn’t suck either) and the wines are underpriced relative to the market. Plenty of further development expected. May even bump up a notch on the next visit. 5.9.24.

2014 vintage. Decanted with trace of sed. A little flat. Not corked or obviously abused but missing that Chevalier love. Expected (and have always received) more. Maybe in a period of transition. 12.15.23.

2014 vintage. This is the red. Still a little salty and pruny. Light-medium/medium body. Good concentration in the frontal palate. Baby fat almost 100% gonzo and deliciously thinning out on the finish. Last tasted 1.28.2022.

2014 vintage. This is the red. Cinnamon, allspice, herbs, sea salt/brine in the nose. An doppelgänger Bandol-light body. A touch riper mid-palate than expected. Previous baby fat gonzo. Green peppercorn also present in the nose but a slight zinc/iodine flavor on the finish shortly after opening. Expecting that to blow off/roll away…it wasn’t there a few months ago. Seemingly in transition but still delicious. If I weren’t so lazy at home, woulda decanted. Lazy tho. Judge not...
