Grand Cru Classe
"Only a great terroir can produce a great wine" are the words of the current owner Olivier Bernard in relation to the wonderful wines of Domaine de Chevalier Located in Bordeaux in the western region of Graves, the history of the Domaine dates back to the 17th Century when the estate was then known as Domaine de Chivaley, Chivaley means knight in Gascon and refers to the link to an old pilgrim trail that borders the Domaine. The Bernard family purchased Domaine de Chevalier in 1983 and invested considerably in the expansion of the vineyards and also in the production processes.

1986 was an austere vintage and one most successful for Bordeaux wines with a Cabernet Sauvignon dominance, some believe the grand wines of this vintage require even further ageing for the flavours to fully develop although many are drinking beautifully now.

Cassis & cedar on the nose with traces of anise, spice & smoke. Firm bodied and lean in the mouth with pronounced savoury tannins, layers of

stewed plum coupled with black & red berry fruit followed by notes of cocoa, graphite &.soft peppery spice in the finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon 64%
Merlot 30%
Cabernet Franc 3%
Petit Verdot 3%
A traditional Bordeaux with great tannic depth that will make a fantastic match for full flavoured meaty dishes such as Steak au Poivre or a slow cooked beef casserole. Roast lamb would also make a superb match as would pheasant or mushroom based dishes.
