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.

Good full medium ruby. Sexy, very pure aromas of crushed blueberry, minerals and licorice lifted by a violet topnote. Dense, ripe and seamless, with terrific energy and a light touch to the tightly coiled flavors of dark berries and graphite complemented by spicy oak. This savory, dry, classic wine has the structure to ensure two decades or more of development in bottle. Finishes with real verve and grip.
