Domaine de Chevalier
The 45 hectares that make up the Domaine de Chevalier are located in Léognan, capital of the Graves subregion. The origins of the estate are very old, since it was called “Chivaley” in 1783, which means “Chevalier” in Gascon. The concept of estate has always been retained by the different owners, who have never wanted to abandon it for the benefit of the appellation “Château”, which is prevalent in Bordeaux.
Today, the Bernard family is the owner of the estate and passes down traditions while seeking perfection for this excellent cru. The Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, which comprises 37 hectares, belongs to the elite of the Great Wines of Bordeaux, even without being part of a classification per se. As to the Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, it is recognized as one of the greatest dry white wines in the world.
