The Estate

Domaine de Chevalier is a world renowned wine estate from the Pessac-Léognan appellation, ranked as the Grand Cru Classé for its both red and white wines in the Classification of Graves wine of 1953 and 1959. It is one of a very few Bordeaux estates to be named “domaine” instead of “château”. The philosophy of Domaine de Chevalier is rather simple – “A great wine is born from great grapes”.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant pale gold.
Intense nose of fresh citrus fruit, white peach and exotic fruit. Gravely soil notes are also very present with menthol and flinty flavors.
On the palate very pure and straight wine showing a great and unctuous richness perfectly balanced by fruit and soil acidity. Feeling of sweetness traducing perfect ripeness of the fruit. Very long finish.
Precise and balanced wine with concentration and very high class style.
Ageing in oak barrels : 18 months (35% new oak)
