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.
