Located in Léognan, capital of the Graves, Domaine de Chevalier's history goes back a very long way. It is listed under the name ôChibaleyö (meaning chevalier, or knight, in Gascon) on the map drawn by the engineer Pierre de Belleyme in 1763. The Bernard family, major players in the French spirits industry and important shippers of great Bordeaux wines, acquired the estate in 1983. Domaine de Chevalier has been managed since that date by Olivier Bernard, who takes great pains to maintain the spirit of balance and search for perfection that has guided production at this superb estate for over 130 years. Domaine de Chevalier's red wine, one of the standard bearers of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, is an elite member of the Bordeaux great growths. White Domaine de Chevalier has remarkable ageing potential and is recognised far and wide as one of the greatest dry white wines in the world.

This is fabulous, long and superintense, with dried pineapple and sliced apples. Dense and powerful, with a great backbone of acidity and a long, long finish. Wonderful structure in this baby white. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Domaine de Chevalier 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: A violet perfume drifts from the 2009 Carruades de Lafite, immediately<br/>suggesting its elegance. This has great depth and layer upon layer of<br/>concentrated fruit, beautifully balanced by ultra ripe, almost powdery tannins.<br/>A wonderful freshness defines the wine whilst the concentrated dark fruit<br/>merges seamlessly into a long, black cherry finish. Put simply, this is the<br/>best Carruades we've ever tasted.
