“Only a great terroir can produce a great wine… I often start out with these words when speaking about Domaine de Chevalier. They convey our fundamental philosophy, not only with regard to viticulture, but also the spirit that pervades the estate, and the men and women who work here. They improve their already considerable skills year after year on behalf of that which is most essential to a fine wine in my opinion – balance.”
– Domaine de Chevalier
Domaine de Chevalier is located in the Pessac-Léognan appellation in a clearing of forestland that protects the vines from extreme temperatures. The domaine calls their terroir ‘a secret garden,’ which is a property of 80 hectares, 35 of which are vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot). The domaine is ranked among the Crus Classés in Graves, and is often the source of some of the greatest red and white blends to come out of Bordeaux.
