La Revue du Vin de France:

"C'est l'un, si ce n'est le plus beau rouge dégusté dans les Graves! Il forme l'expression la plus classique et vibrante d'un cabernet-sauvignon (65%) de tout premier ordre, rehaussé de 30% de merlot et de 5% de petit verdot. Son expression aromatique est légèrement fumée et d'une grande concentration de fruit, sa bouche soyeuse, d'une remarquable extraction de tanins. Il ne présente aucun stigmate des difficultés de l'année. Voilà un cru qui ne s'est pas laissé aller dans la facitlie du millésime. Bravo!"

The Wine Advocate

"One of the stars of the vintage, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of red and black currants, graphite, subtle flowers and well-integrated, toasty oak. Impressively built rich and medium to full-bodied without losing the quintessential elegance and finesse for which this famous estate is renowned, the 2012 Domaine de Chevalier is filled with purity, equilibrium and balance. The tannins are sweet enough that this wine should be accessible when released, and will last for 15-20 years. Is this a modern day clone of their brilliant 1953 (which I drank from magnum at Bern’s Steak House in November for less than $500!)?

I was joking with proprietor Olivier Bernard, who is now the president of the Union des Grands Crus, that his position seems to be accompanied by much higher scores from wine critics. Nevertheless, there is no question that Domaine de Chevalier has been on a relatively hot streak lately, and this 2012 is a beauty."

"Tasted from a barrel sample at en primeur. The Domaine de Chevalier has a lovely understated, very pure, quite feminine bouquet with seamlessly integrated oak that neatly encases the blackberry and blueberry fruit. There is a floral note that emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. There is a real backbone to this Pessac-Leognan, although the structured is disguised behind layers of velvety tannins. Gorgeous – but it deserves several years in the cellar. Tasted April 2013."

"With soft dark red berries, smoke, earth, coffee bean and cherry tones, the medium-bodied wine was produced in a fresh, elegant style, which will drink well young. 90-92 Pts"

René Gabriel's BDX Total

"Sattes Purpur-Granat, dicht in der Mitte, lila Schimmer aussen. Ein Traumbouquet, fein laktisch und somit fast buttrige Konturen, Kirschen, Himbeeren, von der Süsse her einen ganz feinen Touch Grenadine zeigend, Kokosnuancen. Im Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, delikate Tannine, alles ist im Finessenbereich. Vielleicht dann letztendlich doch mehr eine ganz faire Jahrgangsvariante als um jeden Preis aufzufallen. So richtig im Stil der Domaine. Kann sicherlich noch zulegen. Denn - irgendwie spürt man die nächst höhere Wertung schon im Innern…"

"In a vintage in which so many wines are open and forward, Domaine de Chevalier's 2012 Rouge is anything but. As readers know, these wines are capable of aging for decades. The 2012 will certainly need at least a few years in bottle to blossom. With time in the glass, scents of chalk, game, smoke, incense and red cherry jam begin to appear, followed by a hint of white pepper that adds aromatic lift. This is a gorgeous wine from Domaine de Chevalier and proprietor Olivier Bernard, but readers should not be in a hurry. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Stéphane Derenoncourt is the consultant."

"Purple rim, choclolate nose, modern contemporary style. Like this, it has vim and vigour and feels young, which not all wines do this year, sometimes in this vintge you feel you are tasting one or two years on, not primeur. But this has that acidity - tannic backbone combo that is so needed in a young wine that will be able to go the distance. Some high alcohol makes an a brupt finish, but potential, and a young buck. 93 / 18. Highly recommended. Drink 2020 - 2035."
