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.


Domaine de Chevalier watches over a vineyard which comprises over 40 hectares of vines destined for the production of red wine. The vineyard is planted on a gravelly soil with a clay and gravel subsoil. The grape varieties grown at Domaine de Chevalier are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

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.


Sustainable farming.


Maturation in oak barriques (40-60% new oak) for anywhere between 14 and 24 months depending on vintage characteristics.
