Domaine de Chevalier shows classic Graves character with its smoke, tobacco, earth and cassis filled personality. Over the last few years, the red and white wines from the domaine seem to be produced with slightly more concentration and depth. This addition of richness adds a lot to the quality and character of this elegant, Pessac Leognan wine. 92 Pts
Chateau Malartic Lagraviere opens with tobacco, black cherry, cappuccino and earthy scents. Soft in texture, with round tannins and a plush style, the wine finishes with a sweet chocolate covered, dark cherry finish. 91 Pts
