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 perpetuates that spirit of balance and the constant drive for perfection which have been the hallmark of this outstanding wine. The white Domaine de Chevalier is recognized as one of the world’s finest dry wines. Fine, open, sharp, pure and brilliant nose of lemon citrus mixed with acacia blossom. Flinty mineral and smoky notes reminding the expression of Sauvignon Blanc in gravelly and quartz soils. Very fresh palate, fleshy and concentrated from the Semillion, but strained by a beautiful acidity. Pulpy white fruits, full of energy. Balance, finesse and elegance. Delicious today after decantation. It will gain a lot in the cellar for at least 5 years.
