 tasting note





















Domaine de Chevalier, Pessac (Graves) 1988
Colour is browning but still dark ruby at the core. Classic nose of cedar-wood, spice and blackcurrant. There's a soft middle of tobacco, earth and smoke. On the palate the wine is quite lean with highish acidity and some tannins. The fruit has a slightly vegetal quality but with a spicy and sweet blackcurrant depth that emerges over time in the glass. Good, maturing claret from a half bottle (12/99)
