2011 Domaine de Chevalier Red and White Wine, a Nice Pair



Few producers of Bordeaux wine are successful at making both red and white wines.  The number becomes even smaller when you factor in consumer friendly pricing.  Domaine de Chevalier in Pessac Leognan remains popular for their consumer friendly pricing policy, coupled with high quality wine. That tradition is continued with 2011 Domaine de Chevalier.

2011 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge – From an assemblage of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the wine will be aged in 40% new oak. With earth, spice, blackberry and smoke, this elegant, polished wine ends with spicy red and black fruit with dark cherries. 90-92 Pts

2011 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Enticing layers of citrus, green apple, lemon, lime and spice lead to a fresh and concentrated stone, sweet citrus oil and honeysuckle finish.  94-95 Pts
