    February 19, 2019 - really nice comparison to a 2009 this evening
    more rounded fruit with less earthy tones which are definitely more in the background
    a little bit of sleep time for better integration recommended
    maybe 3 more years

    February 1, 2019 - Excellent wine, albeit still very young. This was my first experience with the 2010 Domaine de Chevalier. Popped and let sit for about an hour before serving; this could have used a nice decant though. Wine evolved while in the glasses. A little sweeter than I would have expected, very fruit forward. Nice long, oaky finish however. Definitely something that will provide at least another 15 years of solid drinking, if not more. This is still in a very preliminary stage. Will revisit in 2-3 years.

    December 30, 2018 - Solid Pessac-Léognan, at the very beginning of its drinking window (unfortunately, this was my last bottle...). Not super expressive tonight, but this was well balanced with a good depth and freshness. Perfect with my rack of lamb. Obviously, this will continue to improve for several years. You can start enjoying it or you can cellar for at least another 7-10 years.

    December 8, 2018 - Quite more evolved than the last time I had this wine; I don't know if this was a typical bottle, but I'd recommend to open one to see how evolved your bottles are...but it's definitely ready to drink and enjoyable now. Excellent, very fragrant and very complex. I'd recommend to decant it for about an hour.

    November 26, 2018 - Still young wine. I drunk 2009 few weeks ago and 2010 is less balanced and not really ready to drink (if you expect something special). 3-4 years more and lets see. I prefer more 2009, but 2010 can still surprise. Dark fruit, tabacco and cedar. Still powerfull tanins at the end.

    (Domaine de Chevalier (Pessac-Léognan)) Cabernet Sauvignon 58%, Merlot 35%, Cabernet Franc 5%, Petit Verdot 7%. A glossy, crimson rim, with a darker core than some wines. Creamy confit fruit on the nose here, showing cherry pie with a spicy, slightly peppery edge. A creamy entry here, the fruit very polished as the nose suggested, well buffed with buttery-creamy oak elements. Beautifully vibrant acidity here, the tannins firm and ripe but better covered by the texture of the wine than some others are. They come through only to dominate in the finish and length, which is considerable. It feels very comfortable and integrated in the mouth. Excellent effort.
