About Domaine de Chevalier

Domaine de Chevalier was relatively late to arrive on the Bordeaux wine scene. In 1865, when Arnaud and Jean Ricard acquired this small property on the outskirts of the Lande pine forest, it was in disrepair. Today, the vineyard has more than doubled in size from its original 20 acres.

Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , February 2013

(a blend of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; pH 3.78; 12.9% alcohol):  Medium-deep ruby-red.  Enticing aromas of redcurrant, plum, violet, minerals and graphite complemented by sexy oak spices.  Broad, lush and sweet, with a pristine quality to the perfumed flavors of red berries, black cherry and spices.  Harmonious acidity gives the wine shape and balance and a very clean, fresh mouthfeel.  Finishes impressively broad and horizontal, with smooth, ripe tannins and lingering spicy perfume.  This sophisticated, glossy wine is still remarkably young and lively.
