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 2000s, with the vines reaching maturity, the quality here has returned to that of the great vintages of the 1940s and 1950s. 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.
Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is one of Bordeaux's great white wines. Under Olivier Bernard's stewardship the both the reds and whites have gone from strength to strength, with the white rivalling and often besting the iconic wines from Haut Brion and its sibling La Mission Haut Brion.
