Deep, dark and brilliant color. Intense and expressive nose of blackberries, blueberries and other complex notes of spices: pepper, fresh leather and menthol. On the palate finesse is evident. This wine is rich, fleshy, fruity, concentrated with great tannins. Harmonious and full of delicatessen. Long finish and great energy showing the quality and the respect of the fruit. The terroir notes give freshness and complexity in the long finish. Authentic and first class wine.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel sample. A powerful wine that's full of wood and ripe tropical-fruit flavors. It also has an intensely mineral structure that powers the wine right through to the concentrated finish.

Wine AdvocateA spectacular effort, especially for this challenging vintage, Olivier Bernard's 2011 Domaine de Chevalier boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of subtle charcoal, graphite, black currants and black cherries. Rich and full-bodied with a multilayered mouthfeel and a long, complex, stunning finish, this is a profound example of a 2011 from a great terroir. Consume it over the next 20 years.

Wine SpectatorThis is solidly built, featuring a full-bodied feel from the loam and tar frame, balanced by the depth of the plum, blackberry and fig core. Reveals a smoldering edge through the finish, with an echo of cocoa. Best from 2016 through 2028.
