2000 vintage Bordeaux under $28
| 2nd wine of Domaine de Chevalier
…The finest Domaine de Chevalier in over a decade, this opaque purple-colored effort exhibits abundant character with its striking aromatic profile of burning coals, plums, currants, tobacco, and spice box. Some oak is present, but it is well-integrated in this rich, medium to full-bodied, elegant, pure 2000.
R. Parker on Domaine de Chevalier 2000
Superb to enjoy today! Wooden cases available for purchase of 12 (great Father’s day gift). Only 44 cases available!
|Aromas of crushed plums and light coffee follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and plenty of fruit on the finish. Give it bit of time. Very good second wine. From Domaine de Chevalier. Best after 2004. –JS
