DOMAINE DE CHEVALIER
A very old estate with a lengthy history, designated as 'Chevalier' on the noted 1763 map produced by engineer Pierre de Belleyme, the sustained use of the prefix 'domaine' rather than the more recent 'château' an indication of its respectable age.
In 1983, Domaine de Chevalier was acquired by leading Bordeaux wine merchants, the Bernard family, and it has been managed since then by Olivier Bernard. Domaine de Chevalier's red wine is one of the leading expressions in the Pessac-Léognan appellation, and indeed one of Bordeaux' finest classed growths.
They also produce a white wine, Domaine de Chevalier blanc, regarded as one of the world's finest dry whites.
