Domaine de Chevalier

The Domaine de Chevalier is a great name that inevitably comes to mind when we think of Pessac-Léognan wines. Its origins go back several centuries, and it was once known as "Chibaley", from its Gascon name, according to official records from 1783. 

The latter would also mention a nearby path leading to Santiago de Compostela. The notion of Domaine was deliberately retained by the few owners it has successively known, distinguishing it when the mention of "Château" gradually began to appear in the vineyard.

Grand Cru Classé in red and white in the 1953 Graves classification, the property has belonged to the Bernard family, major Bordeaux merchants, since 1983. Olivier Bernard and his son Adrien manage it, always striving for perfection. 

Domaine de Chevalier is based on a 45-hectare vineyard planted on gravel with clay-gravel subsoils.

- The red grape varieties (40 ha) are 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet franc. The grand vin is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 35% of which are new. L'Esprit de Chevalier is the Second vin rouge. 

- The white grape varieties (5 ha) are 70% Sauvignon blanc and 30% Sémillon. The grand vin blanc is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 35% of which are new. L'Esprit de Chevalier... See more ...

Description Domaine de Chevalier 2022.

The Merlots are intense in both aroma  and flavor, with dense, tender and fleshy tannins.

They are already expressing themselves with finesse and delicacy.

The Cabernet Sauvignons, with their impressive potential, are undoubtedly exceptional.

The first tastings leave us in awe, revealing an extraordinary intensity.

Making up the majority of the blend (65 to 70%), they will contribute to making the 2022 Domaine de Chevalier red wine a vintage of anthology that will mark the history of the Domaine.
