Bordeaux 2017 - Domaine de Chevalier Rouge and Blanc
17 May 2018

Olivier Bernard is a busy man. He’s been the President of the Union des Grand Crus since 2012 and manages no fewer than six Bordeaux chateaux, but still finds time to greet his guests with his customary hospitality, and most importantly, produce spellbinding wines from Domaine de Chevalier.

It will be this ‘jewel in the crown’ of his family’s portfolio that he will always be synonymous with. When he assumed control in 1983 it is fair to say that the vineyards were not in the best of health. A hugely ambitious replanting process was required, and he was the man with the foresight and patience to restore this great estate back to its glory days. Since 2005, we can affirm that the mission has been accomplished. The vines he planted are in their prime and regularly produce sensational wines. We adored the style of the 2017 rouge – it was measured and beautifully pitched. We had felt that the 2016 was perhaps a little supercharged – this is a return to the grace and charm we associate with Domaine de Chevalier. It is tightly coiled, but with aeration reveals layers of Cabernet dominated fruit and effortless yet gripping tannins.
