    (Domaine de Chevalier (Pessac-Léognan)) This is exotic and spiced on the nose, with many of these elements reflecting the presence of a seam of finely grained, toasty oak. The palate is full and balanced, elegantly composed, very firm and taut, with a stony element to the fruit despite the richness of the vintage. This wine breaks the mould here; it is taut, full of finesse, with a fine and grippy structure. Nevertheless it has a very impressive weight and definition, with savoury fruit complexity coming in alongside. Very impressive, a wine that has thrown off the sweet shackles of the vintage to show some really individual character.

    (Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan) This wine has a dark and creamy, cherry red hue. A beautifully crisp aromatic definition here, with more obvious perfume and more vibrant, crunchy fruit aromatics then some of its peers. Nevertheless, the fruit does have a very ripe-rich profile with mulberry and dark red cherry. The same freshness is found on the palate, which has beautifully clean lines, elegant and more gently fleshy than some. The midpalate shows lovely breadth though, with a good backbone of ripe and grainy tannins. Sweetness and freshness combined here. This should be popular with fans of this domaine.
