- +

Domaine de Chevalier rouge 2015 is a great vintage of this Grand Cru Classé of Pessac-Léognan.

2015 was a remarkable year, well balanced between sunshine and rainfall with a beautiful flowering of the buds and healthy harvests under optimal sunshine.

The dress is Jade black with some blue reflections

On the nose: wide aromatic palette on white flowers such as acacia flower and honeysuckle mixed with small black fruits, scents of vine peaches with mineral and smoky notes (quartz and silica) with a very light finish on graphite .

On the palate, the tannins are very round, very expressive and sumptuous with a very fruity finish on jammy Ente and Reine Claude plums.

The bottles will be stored in the cellar, protected from light and noise, with an optimum humidity of 70%. It is a wine to keep whose current heyday will probably last until the 2040s. It is a wine to be decanted several hours before serving.

It is a domain located in Léognan, the capital of Graves, whose origin goes back several centuries and mentioned in a document of 1763, under the name "chibaley" (Knight in old French of the region of Gascony adjoining Aquitaine from Bordeaux).

The main production is red, born from a vineyard that covers about 35 ha with an average age of 35 years on a soil of black sand and fine white gravel and on clay-gravelly subsoil, remarkably well drained. The grape varieties for the red: Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Merlot noir 30% Cabernet Franc 2.5%, Petit Verdot 2.5%.

The average annual yield is around 167 barrels, or around 200,000 bottles.

All the harvest is manual with triple sorting in the vineyard and in the cellar. The wine is aged in new barrels for 30% and aged for 18 months before bottling.
