Domaine de Chevalier

Created by Jean Ricard in 1865, the Domaine de Chevalier covers 67 hectares in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan forest, including 7 hectares of white grapes, on the west of the appellation. Producing exceptional wines in both red and white, the estate was crowned Grand Cru Classé de Graves in 1953. Acquired and managed by Olivier Bernard in 1983, the Domaine de Chevalier extended its fame to the whole world. Olivier Bernard and his team perpetuate that spirit of balance and the constant drive for perfection which have been the hallmark of this outstanding wine.
The red Domaine de Chevalier, the flagship of the Pessac-Léognan appellation belongs to the elite of the great classified growths of Bordeaux.

Domaine de Chevalier is renowned for its ability to produce great wines even in unfashionable vintages thanks to its unique terroir and a draconian selection in the vineyard and the cellar. In fact, this philosophy at times requires vineyard workers to carry out five waves of picking in order to pick only the ripest possible grapes.

The vintage 2020 has a fleshy tannins and contained power. The high-class tannins recall the earthy and peaty flavor. The fruit is everywhere, intensely. Power, balance, maturity, concentration, length, freshness, tension. Everything is there for a great vintage to keep.

AOC Pessac-Léognan
Historically, the inner suburbs of Bordeaux is a region which provides great wines for France as well as for the rest of the world. There are the most famous wines like Chateau Haut Brion, 1st Grand Cru Classé 1855, as well as Chateau Lafitte, Chateau Margaux, Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau La Tour. In order to isolate the soil quality, Pessac Léognan appellation was strictly limited in 1987 by the INAO (Institut National des Appellations d'Origine). Composed of 10 communities surrounding Bordeaux, its soil is mostly gravel and the majority of wines grown there are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot and Malbec in smaller quantities. The typical characteristics of soil and the vines appear to be similar to the Medoc. However, the proximity of the city makes the climate warmer than anywhere else in Bordeaux, therefore, the grape has matures more easily, making the wines more hearty and robust.
