Domaine de Chevalier is not easy to find, hidden in woodland as it is. The Ricard family, who owned the property from 1865 to 1983 introduced drainage in the '60s tom improve the moisture-retaining soils. The Bernard family bought Domaine de Chevalier in '83 and started buying neighbouring plots until the vineyard area was almost doubled in size. Trees around parts of the vineyard have been cleared, since they increased the risk of frost. And new wine-making facilities were added in order to cope with the additional volume of production. The red and white wines from this estate are among the finest of their commune.

"The 2019 Domaine de Chevalier remains a little reticent on the nose at first and takes time to unfurl in the glass (often a good sign, in my book), revealing black fruit, crushed rock, undergrowth and just a touch of brine, perhaps less than in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied, poised and harmonious, with fine-grained tannins, wonderful mineralité and a gentle build toward the saline finish. It gains weight and cohesion with aeration. A noble Domaine de Chevalier that will age with style." Neal Martin
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
