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.

Tasting Notes

"60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Harvested 19 September to 6 October.
Garnet hue. Refined and subtle with stony-mineral character. Generous mid palate with layers of fruit covering an impressive tannic structure. Firm and fresh on the finish. Built for the long haul."

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


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.
