Domaine Chevalier 2016 – Pessac-Léognan – Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, aromatic, elegant, straight and offers freshness. It reveals slight notes of crushed blackberry, crushed strawberry and slight notes of cassis associated with hints of pepper, slight notes of cacao/coffee, racy minerality and a slight grilled hint/smoke. The palate is fruity, fine, well-balanced, fluid, elegant and offers a nice tension, richness (but well-balanced thanks to a beautiful freshness), a beautiful finesse, a beautiful straightness as well as a beautiful structure. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry, cassis and slight notes of fresh wild strawberry associated with woody hints, cacao/dark chocolate and slight notes of racy minerality. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length. Beautiful potential!
