2014 Domaine de Chevalier Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan
& Ch Haut Bailly Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan
The best wines of 2014 enjoy a well-deserved reputation for purity of fruit, fine ripe tannins and effortless balance and in Domaine de Chevalier & Haut Bailly one finds two brilliant examples.
The late summer sunshine in September drew the vintage to a miraculous conclusion, one that could scarcely have been hoped for earlier in the year and allowed healthy, concentrated grapes to be picked slowly and in rude health.
Domaine de Chevalier, a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the balance Petit Verdot, is ‘…beautifully knitted together…quintessential Domaine de Chevalier…’ Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2015.
The Haut Bailly, a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot is ‘…a supremely elegant take on the vintage…a masterclass as ever in precision winemaking…’ Jane Anson, Decanter March 2015.
We are delighted to offer a pair of sumptuous wines from this wonderful vintage, both equally deserving of a place in one’s cellar.
