Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan 2006
Origin: Pessac-Léognan, Graves, Bordeaux, France
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc
Dark, intense, ruby on the disc, glossy black heart.
Characteristic and complex flavors. Intensity, finesse and distinction.
Fruitiness reminiscent of blackberry, black currant, black cherry and blueberry.
Mineral flavors, highlighted by a touch of graphite, smoked and fresh mint, express gravely soil mixed with clay. The high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon gives a spicy character.
A fresh attack on the palate, sweet and fruity evolves on a smooth important tannic high class structure. Smocked back-flavors like licorice, resinous convoy the fruity nose ever felt.The tannins are very elegant. They extend the wine in a superb final, delicate and balanced with good acidity.
Wine with great aging potential. Drinking between 2016 and 2024.
