Heiner Lobenberg über:
Domaine de Chevalier rouge 2009


Lobenberg: Dunkles Rubinrot mit schwarzen Reflexen. Wie so oft eine burgundische, reife, erdbeerbetonte Nase. Dann feines, sanftes Cassis, rote Johannisbeere und rote Kirsche, tolle Harmonie ausstrahlend. Cremige, üppig weiche und sehr charmante Fruchtnase. Der burgundische Touch geht im Mund weiter, wieder diese tolle Harmonie, sanft und voller Harmonie, feine, rote Kirsche mit süßer Johannisbeere und frischer Zwetschge, Walderdbeere und Waldhimbeere, auch Cranberry. Ein verträumter Wein, der seinem eigenen Stil absolut treu ist, einfach nur alles eine Nummer besser als sonst. Ein Spaßmacher auf hohem Niveau. 96/100


Suckling über: Domaine de Chevalier rouge

-- Suckling: Aromas of blueberries and lemon rind. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and bright fruity finish. Refined and beautiful. Layered wine. Pure fruit. Gravelley. Stoney. So classy and complex. 97/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Domaine de Chevalier rouge

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Drinking nicely, with some maturity yet still youthful, the 2009 Domaine De Chevalier offers gorgeous red and black currant fruits, smoked tobacco, damp earth, and cedary spice. Full-bodied, opulent, and undeniably sexy on the palate, with a great mid-palate and sweet tannins. Displaying good balance as well as ripe tannins, its dense, opulent profile is going to continue to evolve for another 30 years or more. Don't be afraid to open bottles, though – it's sensational today. The blend of the 2009 is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot.96/100


Decanter über: Domaine de Chevalier rouge

-- Decanter: Remains deep damson in colour even at nearly 10 years old, and on the attack you find full and true blackberry cassis and bilberry notes, we are really building up layers and complexity on the nose. Gorgeous wine, just beautiful balance and juiciness, and a silken texture to the fruit, tannins that support without ever being intrusive, no question this can age. Tannins are deceptive because they build over the palate. Tobacco and walnut on the finish, I look forward to watching this develop further over the next few years. 96/100


Parker über: Domaine de Chevalier rouge

-- Parker: In late 2011, I had the last bottle in my cellar of the 1970 Domaine de Chevalier. Much to my surprise, it was still holding on to life and remained gorgeously complex in that ethereal Graves style. The 2009, one of the finest Domaine de Chevaliers yet produced, reveals a striking bouquet of burning embers, sweet cherry, black and red currant fruit, spice box, cedar and lead pencil shavings. The tannins are sweet in this fleshy, full-bodied offering. It is built on the notion of extraordinary harmony, elegance and complexity. While not the most concentrated or flamboyant 2009, its intense aromas are already reasonably evolved and its lusciousness and balance are terrific. Made from an interesting blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, its yields of 45 hectoliters per hectare were slightly higher than many of its neighbors achieved. Drink it over the next 25 years. 95/100
