Owned by the Bernard family since 1983, the beautiful Domaine de Chevalier is one of the top classified growths in Bordeaux. The estate is located in the heart of the Pessac-Leognan appellation, in a green haven to the south of Bordeaux. L'Esprit de Chevalier is the estate’s Second Wine.
A benchmark among Pessac-Leognan wines, Domaine de Chevalier watches over a rare vineyard that comprises 45 hectares of red vines. The vineyard lies on a gravelly soil upon a clay and gravel subsoil.
Vinification and aging
The hand-picked grapes are sorted in the vineyard and in the cellar before and after destemming. One of the two vat rooms comprises concrete "tulip vats" to refine the extraction and blending. Aged in barrels for 14 months.
Cabernet Sauvignon (45%)
Petit Verdot (10%).
The color is dense and deep.
Fruity and complex, the nose presents intense notes of red and black fruits, spices and liquorice.
Elegant and concentrated, the palate smoothly combines a full structure with fine, supple tannins. This wine seduces with its freshness throughout the tasting experience and leads to a long and persistent finish.
