Wine Critic Reviews:

Tasted at the chateau. The 2004 has a stony, slightly smoky nose, lacing just a little focus although that may come with time. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity, though lacking a little complexity on the second half. Quite Burgundian for a Domaine de Chevalier - I have a feeling this may improve with bottle age.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Chevalier: With a history that dates back to the late 16th century, Domaine de Chevalier continues to be a mainstay of today's wine market. Their wines are mind-expanding without sacrificing accessibility, and they receive constant praise each year. This level of consistency makes their produce highly desirable, so don't be surprised if you have to outbid potential rivals to obtain a bottle. Their reds are concentrated, intense and striking, with a layered approach and delicious notes of sweet plum, cocoa, and blackberry. Their whites are lively, playful, and refreshing, with an emphasis on pineapple, flowers, crushed minerals, and mangoes. Every bottle is a thrill ride, an experience that lingers in your memory long after drinking. Whether you wish to collect or spark a conversation at a party, some Chevalier might be just what the doctor ordered.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux White: In the world of wine, all other regions must bow before Bordeaux. The absurdly-talented white wine producers continue to assert their dominance by bringing out the true potential of varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Sauvignon Gris. If you have even the slightest bit of appreciation for fine white wine, these bottles will change your life.
Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.
