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

91-94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May 2010

Bright straw-yellow. An initial aroma of cut hay is followed by tangerine, talc and mint. Bright and creamy on entry, then surprisingly lush and full in the middle, with flavors of ripe citrus fruits and minerals displaying noteworthy precision for such a rich wine. Finishes very long and creamy, with a pleasant lemony zing and lingering minerality. Another great success in the making for this estate. Like many other dry whites in '09, this already gives great pleasure, but unlike most of the rest it will still be giving pleasure in 30 years' time.
