Add to favourites

This much respected property in Pessac-Léognan is run with great care by Olivier Bernard whose family took it over from Claude Ricard in 1983. During the 1980s and 1990s there was a major programme of replanting here and since the early 2000’s, with the vines reaching maturity, the quality here has returned to that of the great vintages of the 1940’s and 1950’s. Without doubt, the best vintages of Chevalier are the most recent ones. Domaine de Chevalier performs brilliantly every year now and is a regular star of our blind tastings. It wins its flight at the blind “Southwold” tasting with impressive regularity. However, prices have remained reasonable. This is always one of our best-selling wines en primeur. For Olivier, 2010 was always the best wine that he ever made but he thinks that the 2018 has the chance to beat it – as it has the power of 2010 with the roundness of 2009. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.
