Description

This has really attractive aromas of red berry, raspberry and a hint of cassis. A blend of 70 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 percent Merlot and five percent Petit Verdot, the mid-palate is fleshed out with a lovely seam of redcurrant and blackcurrant, with a lifted finish. Great acidity, crunchy fruit and good flesh, this will age nicely. A very nice well-balanced Domaine de Chevalier.
Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
