Domaine de Chevalier
On the western fringe of the Graves appellation, Domaine de Chevalier runs to 51 hectares, 44 of which are planted to red varieties. It is a family business, run by Olivier and Anne Bernard since 1983. Surrounded by pine forests, its gravel, sand and clay soils produce complex wines that age well, according to winemaking consultant Stephane Derenoncourt. It is farmed according to organic methods but not certified as such.
