A Legendary Chevalier: 2016 Domaine de Chevalier from Pessac-Léognan
What is better than a classified Graves Grand Cru Classé wine? A classified Graves Grand Cru Classé that comes from one of the best vintages ever in Pessac-Leognan, with a juicy discount that's nearly 40% off!
Meet the wine that Jeb Dunnuck (one of the most significant wine critics in the world) described as “a legendary Chevalier in the making,” the 2016 Domaine de Chevalier from Pessac-Léognan.
To fully comprehend the beauty of this potion, I’m going to bring some of wine's most compelling confidants to the conversation and review what they have to say about this gem:
James Suckling described it as an “elegant, fine, and powerful” wine. Jeb Dunnuck confirmed that statement by saying it was “deep and concentrated yet incredibly elegant.” Both critics wrapped up their reviews with an exceptional 97-point score. On the other hand, Wine Spectator pointed out a “lovely combination of prodigious fruit details, with a tug of earth,” while Wine Enthusiast emphatically states how much of an “elegant wine” this is. Decanter elaborates that this wine “is built for aging.” Spectator, Enthusiast, and Decanter conclude their reviews with a 96-point score.
Impressive, right? I could go on and on adding more impressive reviews to the list, but I don’t want to spoil the excitement that you’ll experience after tasting it!
Domaine de Chevalier is considered one of the most important estates in all of Bordeaux. This family-owned Château takes a unique approach during harvest, all grape sorting is done exclusively in the vineyards (even if it means some grapes are picked one at a time). The meticulous operation combined with sustainable practices, impeccable quality standards, and a dreamed terroir, has granted the estate the ability to develop its highly esteemed reputation.
Lastly, I want to mention the vintage, because 2016 was one for the ages, it received an exceptional 97-point rating from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
This wine has it all: The high scores, the impeccable quality, the luscious taste, historical Chateau, but unlike most of the Grand Cru Classée Classified Châteaux, (and luckily for us) it doesn’t have the multiple 0’s behind the tag price.
This is your call to bring home a bottle (or six to get free shipping) of exquisite, sublime Grand Cru Clasée Bordeaux today!
