Available for:
Dark red with a hue of purple. Intense and complex bouquet of red, black and blue berries intermixed with notes of blueberries, minerals (graphite, wet river rocks) licorice, fresh blond tobacco and a hint of lavender. Full bodied, the palate is reminiscent of the nose, with a richly tannic yet round frame and a great intensity. The hillside tannins and the classical aromatic complexity create a harmonious ensemble, leading to a very long and elegant finish. Built to age for decades, this collectible wine opens up after a few years of cellaring and is particularly representative of this special vineyard from the hillside of Knights Valley. Mon Chevalier features the interaction of the loamy, well drained and rocky volcanic soil, the typical sunny mountain climate and the low-interventionistic Morlet winemaking approach.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier, which includes no Merlot (it's 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot) is a black fruited, powerful 2015 that just fills the mouth with fruit. Blueberries, plums, violets, chocolate, and savory herb notes all emerge from this full-bodied, big, meaty, licorice-laced effort that, like all of Luc's wines, stays balanced, graceful and pure. Drink it anytime over the coming 25+ years.

Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller proportions of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier has a very deep garnet-purple color and vibrant nose of red currant, red plums and lavender with fresh black berries and black cherries, plus wafts of dried herbs and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals the full spectrum of Cabernet flavors, with lovely fine-grained tannins and great freshness providing a firm frame for the tightly wound flavors, finishing long and earthy/minerally. Just gorgeous. 850 cases were made.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier is a very typical Knights Valley wine. Game, gravel, smoke, licorice, tobacco and incense give the wine its distinctive Graves-like aromatic profile. Ample on the palate, with broad shoulders and terrific fruit intensity, the 2015 has a lot to offer. Like all of these 2015 Cabernets, Mon Chevalier needs time.

Lush and warm in feel, with plum and blackberry puree flavors wrapped in cocoa, smoldering tobacco and loam notes. The fleshy finish lets the cocoa edge take the lead. Hefty, but shows a seductive edge. Best from 2020 through 2027. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 850 cases made.
