    (Domaine de Chevalier (Pessac-Léognan)) A lovely maturing hue here, with a mahogany tinge. The aromatics are very reassuring, still with a youthful vibrancy even after seventeen years, with a juniper berry freshness cut with hints of redcurrant and just-ripe blackberry, and in layers o top of this hints of minerals, attractively bitter fruits, bay leaf and smoke. The start on the palate is very cool and refined, well framed, savoury and with mouth-watering acidity, It has the sort of structure and crunchy fruit profile that would have lovers of modern Bordeaux running for the hills. Through the midpalate this style remains apparent, giving a very clean and clipped style, with a fresh and acid bound finish. It does have a certain fullness to it though, as although this is no creamily-styled modern Bordeaux there is certainly some substance here. In the finish, cranberry fruit, and all the acid that berry usually carries. It certainly has a clean, well framed substance. Overall, I like this, but it does have a lighter and more acidic backbone in keeping with the traditional view of the vintage.
