    The class and refinement of a Graves Grand Cru Classe

    A Classified Growth from the Pessac-Leognan appellation located in the south of the Bordeaux region, Domaine de Chevalier embodies the prestige and excellence of Graves wines and its own unique identity, which has remained consistent in quality and style over the past 20 years.

    Although the frost at the end of April 2017 hit the vineyards of Bordeaux and did not spare Domaine de Chevalier, the climatic conditions afterward allowed the grapes to reach full phenolic maturity. The grape harvests took place from September 11 to 29, 2017, and the precocious nature of the vintage made it possible to harvest grapes with a perfect balance between sugar and acidity, and beautiful aromatic freshness.

    Elegant and refined, the red First Wine from Domaine de Chevalier displays the best of the Graves appellation. The color seduces with beautiful ruby and brilliant reflections. The blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), supplemented by Merlot (25%) and Petit Verdot (5%), revealing the identity of each grape variety. The aromatic palette exudes a freshness and purity of fruit, while the palate offers finesse and elegance, guided by a tannic structure with a smooth structure, tender and tasty. Already displaying the qualities of a great wine in its youth, the Domaine de Chevalier 2017 will evolve plenty of refinement over the years to come and express the full extent of its personality after aging several years.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2017 Domaine de Chevalier is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of baked plums, black cherry compote, fruitcake and violets plus wafts of fragrant earth and rosehip tea. Medium-bodied, the palate has loads of fruit with plush, rounded tannins and a lively finish. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, this vintage spent 18 months in French oak, 35% new.
