Domaine de Chevalier 2006 Pessac-Légonan
Origin: Pessac-Légonan, Graves, Bordeaux, France
Blend: cabernet sauvignon (60%), merlot (30%), petit verdot (5%), cabernet franc (5%)
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.
