Domaine de Chevalier
Locatedin Léognan, capital of Graves, Domaine de Chevalier is of ancient origin. In 1783, Domaine de is noted as the “Chibaley” (Knight in Gascon) on the map of the geographical engineer Pierre Belleyme. The very notion of domain, deliberately kept by the successive owners who never wanted to abandon it to the most recent name of “Château” is the legacy of this exciting and very ancient history. In 1983, the property was purchased by the Bernard family, French leader in the spirits market and an important Bordeaux wine merchant. It is managed since then by Olivier Bernard who perpetuates the spirit of excellence of this Grand Cru. The Domaine de Chevalier red wine, flagship of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, belongs to the elite of the Bordeaux Grands Crus. The Domaine de Chevalier white wine is known as one of the greatest dry white wines in the world.
What they appreciate in U'Wine
Before being a producer, I am primarily a wine lover.
I like wine. I own a big cellar today because I started building it 35 years ago. Wine is a question of passion, a passion that generally gets hold of you when you are still young.However, filling your personal cellar with the right bottles is a complicated matter. U’Wine advises and accompanies you with your choices and they do all the work for you. Now, to me, that’s a real and seriously delivered service.
What I like with U’Wine is also that they are a “first hand buyer”. No intermediaries. They buy directly from the Châteaux and sell directly to individuals, often even final consumers; this is the true subject of distribution, selling to the final consumer….
And if, in addition to that, this whole process is undergone with endless enthusiasm, passion and respect for the Bordeaux Grands Crus, then I can only be fond of it!
