2009 Domaine de Chevalier

Community Tasting Note

Likes this wine:

92 Points

Sunday, March 31, 2024 - Decanted 2 hours and drank over another hour. Not Wowed at all. Pretty one dimensional really. Tannins are soft. More cellaring isn’t going to improve it. Smooth drinking but really average. Why I’m inclined not to spend a lot for these Modern Bordeaux’s. It’s good but not great.

Your note appeared on my feed because I have several of these. So now, you have my full attention and curiosity. I have to find one of my bottles and tug on the head.
