90 points "One of the finest wines of the vintage. Dark, ruby with unevolved, but generous bouquet of smokey new oak, cassis and flowers, Fleshy, generously endowed. Powerful & elegant"

90 points "Silky and elegant red, with fine tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a mineral aftertaste. Already a beauty to taste. Best after 2007. 7,500 cases made. (JS)" Best 2007-

"89-91 points: This is a reassuring as well as encouraging offering from this great estate in the southern sector of Pessac Leognan. A deep ruby/purple color, and a sweet perfume of cassis and vanilla are followed by a medium-bodied, expansively flavored, concentrated wine with loads of fruit, considerable definition, and soft tannin. Domaine de Chevalier can give the appearance of being too woody and lean, but the 2002 has flawlessly integrated wood. The tannin is sweet in this impressively elegant, expansive Pessac Leognan. It should drink well between 2006-2016." Best 2006-2016
