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 white Domaine de Chevalier is recognized as one of the world’s finest dry wines.
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 an intense and exotic floral nose of yellow peach, mangoes and citrus fruits. Dense, generous, greedy but lively palate, with a delicate touche. Refined, ripe and very delicate flesh. Long elegant finish with great finesse.
