R. Parker : Domaine de Chevalier 2009 : 95

Domaine de Chevalier Rouge 2009 :95
February 2012

"In late 2011, I had the last bottle in my cellar of the 1970 Domaine de Chevalier. Much to my surprise, it was still holding on to life and remained gorgeously complex in that ethereal Graves style. The 2009, one of the finest Domaine de Chevaliers yet produced, reveals a striking bouquet of burning embers, sweet cherry, black and red currant fruit, spice box, cedar and lead pencil shavings. The tannins are sweet in this fleshy, full-bodied offering. It is built on the notion of extraordinary harmony, elegance and complexity. While not the most concentrated or flamboyant 2009, its intense aromas are already reasonably evolved and its lusciousness and balance are terrific. Made from an interesting blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, its yields of 45 hectoliters per hectare were slightly higher than many of its neighbors achieved. Drink it over the next 25 years." 95

WINE SPECTATOR, Chevalier Primeur 2009 red : 93-96

DOMAINE DE CHEVALIER Pessac-Léognan 2009 Score: 93-96
Shows a super nose of crushed blueberry and blackberry, with hints of raspberry. Full-bodied, offering a fabulous core of fruit and ripe tannins that caress your palate for minutes. Love the chocolate and blueberry character.
Wonderful texture. JamesSuckling.

DECANTER, Chevalier Primeur 2009 Red:****,18 points

Domaine de Chevalier, Cru Classe Graves, Pessac-Leognan 2009

Black red, fine intensity of fragrant Cabernet fruit, touch of wild roses, concentrated yet already showing potential complexity, beautifully expressed palate with density and fragrance and a taffeta aspect that adds lift to its succulent elegance and class. Drink 2015-30. (18 points)

R. Parker. Domaine de Chevalier Primeur 2009 Red: 94-96*

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)

Domaine de Chevalier Primeur 2009 Red : 94-96*

"The finest wine I have tasted from this estate in my 30+ year career, the 2009 (64-pourcent- Cabemet Sauvignon, 30-pourcent- Merlot, and 6-pourcent- Petit Verdot) from this hallowed vineyard in Leognan was cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare and came in at 13-pourcent- alcohol. It reveals an extraordinary, intense, pure, quintessential Domaine de Chevalier style, including silky tannin, dense plum, black currant, black cherry, floral, and graphite notes, terrific acidity, sweet tannin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel with no weight, but admirable precision and freshness. Consultant stephane Derenoncourt has coaxed out all the elegance and complexity at this great site. A future legend in the making, this could be the best Domaine de Chevalier produced over the last half century. It should drink well for 35-40 years.
(Tasted four times.)"
Readers will note an asterisk (*) after some wine scores. I added this to signify when I thought a wine had the finest potential of all the offerings I had ever tasted from that estate in nearly 32 years of barrel tasting samples in Bordeaux.

Dom de Chevalier 2009 Pessac-Léognan 17.5 -plus- Drink 2018-2030
Strong Cabernet aromas. Unusual! Well balanced and zesty. This seems what Pessac-Léognan should be. Very dry but not drying on the finish. Complete and full of minerality.

Domaine de Chevalier had intense and aromatic on the nose with black cherries and blackburrants, splendid depth and length, smooth aftertaste. Terrific effort for the vintage.
