The 2016 Domaine De Chevalier is a total gem in this vintage. Composed of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc this opes to inviting aromas of ripe black berries and red currants which are woven together with Asian spices, spring florals, tobacco and wet stones all taking shape. On the palate this possesses a medium-full body with excellent overall balance. It continues to impress as it shows wonderful depth and complexity, backed by huge, well-polished tannins which provide plenty of structure through the long finish. While this is showing flashes of brilliance in its youth, it will ultimately require some time before it hits its stride. Given its quality year after year, this remains one of the best values in all of Bordeaux.
