Esprit de Chevalier is a charming red wine with many of the same qualities as the grand vin and the added advantage that can be enjoyed earlier.
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.
