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

87 Points | International Wine Cellar , February 2013

(65% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 12.3% alcohol):  Medium red with an amber rim.  Direct nose hints at Oriental spices, orange rind and dried redcurrant.  Fruitier on entry, then tightens up in the middle, showing only modest concentration to its red fruit and spicy citrus jam flavors.  Slightly astringent tannins coat the palate on the moderately persistent finish, which betrays a vegetal note that I found intrusive.  I'd drink this fruit-challenged wine soon.
