Once part of the cave co-operative at Tain- Hermitage, the family vineyards of Domaine Chevalier are gradually being reclaimed by the brother and sister team of Nicolas and Marlène Chevalier. Following his formal agricultural studies in France, Nicolas spent four years honing his winemaking skills on estates in Australia, California and South Africa.
Nicolas works with three distinct parcels: Marius, Petite Pend, and Les Pends. These vineyards have excellent exposure and allow for dependably ripe, high quality grapes, although not without great aromatic character and freshness.
Deep purple color. Layers of fruit roll over the palate, very soft and appealing. Chewy texture, medium finish. A Syrah for current drinking, enjoy with grilled meats.
