Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan 2019
Oliver Bernard observes that, for him, 2019 is not a vintage defined by an endlessly sunny summer, as August was relatively cool. Harvest dates were quite late too; here the Cabernet Sauvignon was not finished until 12th October. This has a lovely, suave intensity and there is evident freshness. Sophisticated and silky, it’s a little gem.
