Owned by the Bernard family since 1983, the magnificent Domaine de Chevalier is one of the greatest Classified Growths of Bordeaux. Like a secret garden, this iconic estate of the Pessac-Leognan appellation is located in a verdant setting south of Bordeaux.
Domaine de Chevalier boasts a rare vineyard comprising 5 hectares of white grape varieties. A veritable mosaic of terroirs, the Domaine de Chevalier vineyard is planted in black sand soils and fine white gravel upon a clay-gravel subsoil with ideal water drainage.
2019 has turned out to be a vintage with great potential. Conditions were favorable throughout the vegetative cycle of the vine, especially during the very decisive month of September. These excellent conditions made it possible to achieve grapes with a great balance of sweetness and acidity, as well as perfect ripeness.
The winemaking and aging
Manual harvest in crates from September 3 to 19, 3 to 5 sorts. Slow pressing for 3 hours. Settling and alcoholic fermentation in barrels. Aging for 18 months in barrels with stirring of the lees.
The Domaine de Chevalier white 2019 displays a pretty, crystalline appearance with a pale yellow-gold hue. Bursting with fruit, the nose reveals aromas of white fruit and citrus fruit, along with herbaceous notes of honeysuckle and hawthorn. Full-bodied on the palate, the Domaine de Chevalier white 2019 is rich, gourmet and bursting with a beautiful liveliness.
