Chevalier Du Val

Domaine de Chevalier

L'Esprit de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Another great 2nd. Rich and dark in the glass, the nose is fresh but earthy with floral notes, coffee and dark fruit. Palate evolves over a couple of hours, opening into a great blend of stewed fruit, spice, almond, sour cherries and baking spice. Tannins are firm but acidity is in check and there is a nice medium length finish which has a little tart sweetness. Very enjoyable and plenty of unexpected complexity. — 2 days ago

Les Demoiselles Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1986

Deep gold color. Motor oil weight in the glass. Happy to find the nose has some interesting notes and doesn’t signal the wine is too advanced. Candied apricot. Kiwi fruit, apple slices, pebble stones, sweet lemon. Good structure. Great finish. Maybe just a hint oxidized but overall a great old white burg experience. — 9 days ago

Clos du Val

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Imo this has a way to go - it came across as tart and quite young, a bit surprising to me but I’ve not had a lot of clos du Val.

Clos du Val

Carneros Chardonnay 2016

With grapes from Carneros, pale lemon with aromas of stone, citrus fruits and spice. The palate had flavors of apple, pear, peach, lemon zest and melon, complex, mineral tones with soft creamy oak and sweet spice. The wine was fresh, a bit creamy, with vibrant crisp acidity, well balanced on a long finish. Nice Chard with some mid-term aging potential. Outstanding! — 13 days ago

Clos du Val

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Opaque dark violet with clear meniscus.. couldn’t have told this is 12 yrs old looking at the wine in the glass. Medium viscosity. oak-spiced, red and blue fruit, chocolate, tobacco and floral pastille aromas.  Mocha and vanilla flourish. Plush, velvety and broad mouthfeel, it offers sweet cassis and blackberry flavors with a long spice and oak finish. Rich and energetic in style, medium acidity, resolved medium minus tannins and medium alcohol. Delicious expression of a high quality CA cab. I like this much better than bold and high ABV CA cabs. This was 14% ABV. — 2 days ago
