  • Goedhuis, April 2022, Score: 91-93

    Dark chocolate and fresh cherry aromas. This is a lovely easy style, with an attractive ripeness of fruit and subtle earthy granular core. The touch of smoky sweetness complete a full and rounded wine, expressive of the 80% Merlot which contributes so much to this charming 2021.

  • Wine Cellar Insider, April 2022, Score: 89-91

    Minty herbs, plums, tobacco leaf and cigar box in the nose introduce the medium-bodied, soft, silky, fresh and chalky red fruits oriented wine. This will be gorgeous to enjoy on release. The wine was produced from a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. 12.9% ABV. Harvesting took place October 1 - October 12. Drink from 2023-2032.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2022, Score: 17.5

    With a superbly aromatic nose of herbs and spices, this is an immediately alluring wine with an exotic perfume that is quite daring and enticing. The palate is slippery-smooth and not too rich in any direction, just new and exciting, alive and clean and refreshing. The fruit is cherry and plum-themed, buoyant and lip-smacking. Bordeaux is dynamic and moving forwards with such momentum, and this estate is the cutting edge, with wines that precisely reflect the site and are augmented in their purity with the new winery and team spirit.

Region

Pessac-Léognan

Stretching from the rather unglamorous southern suburbs of Bordeaux, for 50 km along the left bank of the river Garonne, lies Graves. Named for its gravelly soil, a relic of Ice Age glaciers, this is the birthplace of claret, despatched from the Middle Ages onwards from the nearby quayside to England in vast quantities. It can feel as though Bordeaux is just about red wines, but some sensational white wines are produced in this area from a blend of sauvignon blanc, Semillon and, occasionally, muscadelle grapes, often fermented and aged in barrel. In particular, Domaine de Chevalier is renowned for its superbly complex whites, which continue to develop in bottle over decades. A premium appellation, Pessac-Leognan, was created in 1987 for the most prestigious terroirs within Graves. These are soils with exceptional drainage, made up of gravel terraces built up in layers over many millennia, and consequently thrive in mediocre vintages but are less likely to perform well in hotter years. These wines were appraised and graded in their own classification system in 1953 and updated in 1959, but, like the 1855 classification system, this should be regarded with caution and the wines must absolutely be assessed on their own current merits.
