Appellation d'origine contrôlée and Grand cru classé de Pessac Leognan

The wines of the Domaine de Chevalier

In the southwest of Bordeaux, on the left bank of the Garonne, the Domaine de Chevalier belonged to the Ricard family since 1865 and was bought by the Bernard family in 1983. Domaine Chevalier is a Grand Cru Classé of the Pessac Leognan appellation (from the 1959Graves classification). The vines (61 hectares of which 6 are grown for Bordeaux white) are planted on the westernmost point in Pessac Leognan on graves combined with clay and iron.

The vines, cultivated in lutte raisonnée (with more reasonable approach of chemical use), are 35 years old. Four varietals are planted in Cabernet Sauvignon (63%), Merlot (30%), Petit Verdot (5%) and the Cabernet Franc (2%), as well as two white varietals Sauvignon blanc (70%) and Sémillon (30%). The Domaine is surrounded on three sides by woods that dampen the temperature deviations between summer and winter.

The Domaine de Chevalier produces 2 wines of each colour: the Grand Vin du domaine de Chevalier, their first wine and "L’Esprit de Chevalier", their second wine. Since taking over the winery, Olivier Bernard developed the winery while conserving it's quality and place amongst the best crus classés of the Pessac Léognan appellation. The winery has attained a respectable age and has progressed even more after 2000, notably thanks to the recommendations of the œnologue Stéphane Derénoncourt. The Grand vin possesses a rich fruitiness and delicate spice, all about finesse and a great capacity to age, from 10 to 20 years. The white Grand vin imposes its fruit and tension of some of the finest Sauvignon blanc wines. It's hard to resist laying it down, but in great vintages such as 2001, the patient will be rewarded. The second wine, L’Esprit de Chevalier is true to the Grand vin, but in a charming style and more immediate and approachable, to be drunk between 4 and 10 years in red and within 5 years in white. The best vintages of the Domaine de Chevalier are2015, 2014, 2010, 2009, 2005, 2003, 2001 (especially for white wines), 2000, 1996, 1990, 1989, 1988, 1983. The actual level of the Domaine de Chevalier is on the level of a Second Grand cru classé of the Médoc. The rarity of the white makes it a highly sought after wine.
