Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact, Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. This is something of a paradox for such an excellent wine, among the greatest in Bordeaux . Only a great terroir can produce a great wine... I often start out with these words when speaking about Domaine de Chevalier. They convey our fundamental philosophy, not only with regard to viticulture, but also the spirit that pervades the estate, and the men and women who work here. They improve their already considerable skills year after year on behalf of that which is most essential to a fine wine in my opinion — balance. – Description from dvoristanac

  • Domaine de Chevalier Rouge 91 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Domaine de Chevalier was reputed to be among the best picks of 2013 - a sub-par vintage - and it does reach to the skies; the scent is of rich, ripe cherries cut on a metal board, and the entry is similarly metallic and rich in red and black fruit with some cedar shank and oak tannin. Finish is long and indicates some aging potential - although ... Read More

  • I've long had a weak spot for those Graves blends, though I've probably had 10 Domaine de Chevalier to every one Haut Brion Blanc, price not being the only issue. I've told myself there must be some cultish factor surrounding Mount Mary to justify that price on release.Do you usually drink structured reds with such spicy dishes? I've had some lu... Read More

  • Clos des Lunes Lune D Argent 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The 2013 edition of Domaine de Chevalier's Clos des Lunes (Lune d'Argent) white Bordeaux blend is somewhat more muted on the nose than the previous edition (2012) with gooseberry predominating. Colour is very light yellow. Entry is clean, refreshing and citric - but with a creamier mouthfeel (Semillon dominates) than most other similar Bordeau... Read More
