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.
93+ Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010
Pale, bright yellow. Reticent but pure aromas of lemon, crushed stone, violet and lavender. Locked up tight on the palate, showing near-painful flavors of citrus peel, crushed stone and vanilla. This very shy and youthfully disjointed wine probably needs 15 years in the cellar to harmonize and express itself.
