Second Wine L’Esprit de Chevalier
About One of the few Bordeaux estates to be named a ‘Domaine’ instead of a ‘château’ but that in no way diminishes its standing as one of the most distinguished producers in the Graves appellation. This success has been achieved in a relatively short space of time compared to other estates in Bordeaux, although the family that own it can trace their Bordeaux heritage back to the 12th Century. Unusually, Domaine de Chevalier produces a white wine that is not only highly sought after but extremely long-lived.
