3 stars " Deep velvety ruby, fine nose of crushed small berry fruit, raspberries. Smooth and sophisticated, fine extraction but could have more intensity. Should fill out in cask." Best 2009-2020

" 88-90 points Robert Parker: "A soft, open-knit, evolved, sexy style of Domaine de Chevalier, the 2003 exhibits wood smoke, barbecue spice, and complex, jammy plum and cherry characteristics. More class and restraint are found on the palate in this medium-bodied, spicy, lightly tannic, low acid effort. Enjoy it over the next 10-12 years." (04/04) According to the Wine Spectator: "A fresh and fruity red with plum and tobacco character. Medium body, with a solid core of fruit and fine tannins and a medium finish. Nicely done." (04/04) Barrel sample according to Clyde Beffa, K&L's Bordeaux Buyer: "65% cabernet sauvignon, 23% merlot, 7% petit verdot and 5% cabernet franc. Very peppery and spicy aromas. Good mid-palate sweetness. Lovely wine. *" (04/04)"
