Keep it classy
South of the city of Bordeaux, in the beautiful Pessac-Léognan appellation, you'll find Domaine De Chevalier. One of the true classic producers in Bordeaux.
The estate has roots all the way back to the 18th century and wine has been produced on the property since early 19th century. It's all you want from a classic Bordeaux producer. A classic mix of grapes, robust and elegant style and consistency in quality. Wine from Domaine De Chevalier is always good. The estate produces both red and white wines. These are named after the property and called Domaine De Chevalier. They are quite pricy and range from 700 to 2000kr depending on the vintage.
But the real scoop here is their second wine. Most of the great Chateau's in Bordeaux produce a so called "second wine". They are often blended with grapes from younger vineyards, waiting to reach the potential for the number one wine. But they are still great grapes. And the second wine of a top Domaine or Chateau, is always a very high quality wine. It's made by the same winemakers, using the same methods and techniques as in the top wine. It's just way better priced :)
Trying "L'Esprit De Chevalier" is a high end wine experience, at a fraction of the cost.
