Since the early 2000's, with the vines reaching maturity, the quality has returned to that of the great vintages of the 1940's and 1950's. Without doubt, the best vintages of Domaine de Chevalier are the most recent ones. The terroir of this much respected property in Pessac-Léognan is made up of fine white gravel soils mixed with black sand on a clayey-gravelly subsoil, ensuring the soil is efficiently drained. The approach is fundamentally ecological, according to differentiated nutritional needs. Of the 45 hectares of the estate, 40 are made up of red grape varieties, essentially Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, very little Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc

Winemaker Notes

Olivier Bernard

Domaine de Chevalier

by Olivier Bernard
Fruit ripening was ideal in our gravelly soils: powerful concentration and freshness perfectly balanced. Manual and precise harvest in the good timing was the warrant of a great purity. Reds are powerful, extremely fruity and full bodied of classy dense tannins. Balance and freshness for a long ageing potential. A great freshness will guarantee a great taste through years
