A brief history

Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact, Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. This is something of a paradox for such an excellent wine, among the greatest in Bordeaux. «Only a great terroir can produce a great wine… I often start out with these words when speaking about Domaine de Chevalier.

They convey our fundamental philosophy, not only with regard to viticulture, but also the spirit that pervades the estate, and the men and women who work here. They improve their already considerable skills year after year on behalf of that which is most essential to a fine wine in my opinion – balance

The Domaine de Chevalier located in Léognan, the Capital town of the Graves Region has a long history. It appears on the famous map of Pierre de Belleyme in 1783. In 1983 the estate was purchased by the Bernard Family, N° 1 in France on the spirits market and a major negociant of premium Bordeaux wines. It has been run ever since by Olivier Bernard who perpetu- ates that spirit of balance and the constant drive for perfec- tion 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 classi- fied growths of Bordeaux. The white Domaine de Chevalier is recognized as one of the world’s finest dry wines.
