Domaine de Chevalier, La Petite Lune, Bordeaux, 2016
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2025
Produced by the Bernard family of Domaine de Chevalier fame, this is a great-value Bordeaux blend forged out of an alliance between Olivier Bernard and Stéphane Derenoncourt. With the luxurious texture of the 2016 vintage behind it, this has plenty of dark red and black currant notes, a touch of herbs and lead pencil to finish, all carried on a wave of silky tannins. Some good ageing potential as well.
