Chevalier’s Vineyard

Some exceptional Graves Grands Crus Classés wines are produced on this venerable estate with a timelessly modern wine store. The estate is such a secret garden in the midst of woods and vineyards from where the vat emerges. Made of stone, metal and glass, the circular vat fits in to the architecture of the eighteenth century property. Olivier Bernard, a knight of the vine, feels in osmosis with his estate and his vineyard, living amidst it all and entertaining the greatest oenologists and visitors the world over with such elegance. Tasting his vintages, one discovers extraordinarily complex, thoroughbred wines that are velvety, rich in aromas, tannic, with a long finish. The 2010 Domaine de Chevalier Grand Cru Classé is a full bodied, yet tender wine with hints of pear and freshness. As for the Domaine Chevalier 1920, a rarity, it has kept all its aromas intact and expresses notes of smoked China tea. A sheet moment of happiness! Visits by appointment. Tel: +33 5 56 64 16 16
