Drank 7/25/18. Paired with grilled lamb chops and a red wine reduction.

The 2nd wine of Domaine de Chevalier, one of my favorite producers from Pessac-Leognan. Like many of the other wines in the 2012 vintage, it seems to have a bit of a leg up on similar quality wines from the Medoc

Nose of sweet black and purple fruits with wet rock and a little soil. Dark fruits and plums mingle with black cherry and a touch of spice on the palate, that is very well balanced, yet perhaps lacking some of the fruit concentration of the grand vin. Finishes with dark fruits and drying, yet well integrated tannins. A very well made wine that has a silky mouthfeel beckoning you to drink another glass.

3/20/8/5/4 + 50 = 90 pts.
