Domaine De Chevalier 2001

92 points

Graves, Pessac Leognan. 13%

This is distinctly dilute reflecting some difficulties with the 2001 vintage but it’s awfully hard to complain as in this case all it has meant is the wine is drinking early. And so well.

Gorgeous left bank claret with fresh appetizing fruit, light flavoursome succulent even. Framed perfectly in unobtrusive oak. This really is very fine. Delicious now.
