Details:

The Chevalerie is from forty-five year old vines. A deep purple (almost opaque) core leads to a narrow rim - this is a big, concentrated wine. The nose offers a huge whiff of raspberry, blackcurrant and dark cherry aromas, with a touch of cedar/pencil shavings as well as spice and blond tobacco and sous-bois. The palate is dense and rich, with bags of sweet, ripe fruit flavours. There are some healthy tannins here, so saddle that haunch of wild boar and make like a parody of Henry VIII (tearing the meat off the bone, gulping your vinous grog and lobbing the carcase over your shoulder – it‘s the new courtly behaviour).
