Today I like to talk about Pessac which I seldom write on. 1998 is a good year for Pessac where they produce some good wines and a prominent wine has to be Domaine de Chevalier 1998! Domaine de Chevalier 1998 exhibit 98’s character of opulence, charm and concentration – beautifully. They are rich and round and in their best times, they become flashy with freshness.


Last Sunday, I opened this bottle in a home dinner. I held this bottle up the previous night. Very easy drinking and gratifying as I drank with my chicken chop and pasta, what I really also enjoy is this Domaine de Chevalier 1998 isn’t expensive to boot yet filled with characteristics of a traditional bordeaux wine!

If you draw your nose to the bottle, immediately it gives a classic Bordeaux notes. Plenty of red and taste of black fruits, with smoky and tobacco that boosted its intense and complex flavors. Just the right acidity without being over powering! Oh speaking of black fruits, I also tasted bunch of sweet cranberries with a silky texture that has the perfect mix of fruits and tannins, ending off in a long velvety fruity finish.

Refined with pure elegance and perfect balance, Domaine de Chevalier 1998 is firm yet fine tannins! A sip will make you go “Aww….wow very bordeaux” . Well, don’t take my words for it, try it for yourself!

Given 10 years, Domaine de Chevalier 1998 starts to drink very well but because it’s produced in 1998, it can be expected to age even more and continue to gain complexity. I would say it still remain versatile, you can age further or savor it in 2015 where the drinking window is still good. This is a vintage to buy!
