2000 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge (J.S.)

This offers a complex nose of sweet tobacco and stones, with red fruits such as plums, as well as a smoky note on the nose. Full and juicy, with a tobacco and berry character that turns almost tea-like on the finish. This has medium tannins, and is just starting to come around. Drink now or hold. Score 93.

Domaine de Chevalier 2000 (R. P.) : 91

Abundant notes of sandy, loamy soil, forest floor, black currants, cherries, and unsmoked high-class cigar tobacco jump from the glass of this complex, perfumed Pessac-Leognan. Medium-bodied and lighter than many 2000s, it has resolved all of its tannin, and appears to have reached full maturity. This wine has such superb balance that I suspect it will last another 8-10 years. Rating 91 (June 2010)

Domaine de Chevalier, 2000 rouge (Wine Spectator) : 92

Subtle and already delicious. This is lovely. Loads of chocolate and berry character in this young red. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a medium-long finish. Best after 2007. 7,500 cases made. Score 92 (Issue Mar 31, 2003) –JS

2000 Domaine de Chevalier (NM) : 92

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 2000 tasting in London. This is much more backwards on the nose, more reductive in style, rather flatter and less vivacious. Leathery black fruits and a touch of wild mushroom. A clean entry on the palate, rounded red-berried fruit, a touch of earth and tobacco, linear and straight-laced, lacking a touch of complexity towards the finish. Returning to my glass, it coalesces and exudes elegance rather than power. Poised and feminine. Drink 2012-2025. Tasted March 2010.
