Wine Advocate-Parker :
A disturbing pattern appears to be emerging with recent offerings from this chateau. After bottling, the wines are fruitless, ferociously tannic, and completely out of balance. Even the white Domaine de Chevalier seems to be missing the great intensity of flavor and ripeness that one expects from this renowned estate in Pessac-Leognan. This is a frightfully lean, austere, ferociously tannic wine that is nearly devoid of fruit and charm. There is some spice and new oak in the nose, but there is very little flavor and flesh to what is, in essence, a wine of all structure - acidity, alcohol, and wood tannin. Given the number of marvelous Domaine de Chevaliers I have tasted as well as purchased over the years, I hope my tasting notes for the 1993-95 prove to be terribly inaccurate.
