Lot presentation

Domaine de Chevalier Cru Classé de Graves 2010

The wine

The red wines (85% of production) are representative of their terroir and are very fine. They have a dark colour, and a bouquet that releases smoky, toasty notes. On the palate they are soft and rounded, with gentle, well-integrated tannins. A very high quality wine that should be kept for several years before drinking. After aging, this wine becomes copper-coloured and develop autumnal aromas.

About the Producer Domaine De Chevalier

The Domaine de Chevalier only became a wine-producing property in the second half of the 19th century, and at the time still used its Gascon name of Domaine de Chivaley. Thanks to the ambitious owner, Jean Ricard, the quality of the production soon developed and gained public recognition. The property reached new heights in the 1950s on the basis of the advice of Professor Peynaud, who further improved the quality of the white wines. Oliver Bernard has managed the property since 1983, with the assistance of Professors Pascal Ribereau-Gayon and Denis Dubourdieu. Man's role is simply to reveal the terroir is the owner's guiding philosophy. However, the property's terroir is known for its capricious nature: poor at the surface with rich subsoil, at danger from frosts due to its basin-shape, but with plenty of sunshine thanks to a north-south orientation. And so special care is required if it is to reveal its exceptional character.
