2014 vintage. This estate is extremely reliable and while it has a long track record of excellence, it has been shining even more under the reign of Olivier Bernard. Definitely among the best wines of the vintage, it features a complex nose with black fruits (blackberries, black cherries, cassis), intertwined with spices, a subtle smokiness and some floral hints. While it may not be as profound as the incredible 2015 and 2016 Domaine de Chevalier, this is an excellent wine in its own right and seriously good value at this quality level. Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) dominates the blend, combined with 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Layers of dark fruit, fresh acidity, combined with classic Pessac-Léognan spiciness and a ripe tannic backbone. Terrific length too. Highly recommended. Abv. 13,5%.

Touch of tobacco showing through the dark fruit already. Tannins already integrating. This will be dynamite in the cellar.
