    A Bordeaux Rosé with Bright Red Fruit Flavours

    Domaine de Chevalier, located in Leognan in the Graves region on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, was first purchased by the Bernard family in 1983. Since then, the historical estate has been run by Olivier Bernard, and has produced wines with a reputation for quality. The estate's namesake First Wine and one of the great classified growths of Bordeaux, the Domaine de Chevalier red has been a flagship of the Pessac-Leognan appellation since its very first vintage. Meanwhile, the estate's signature white has been recognised as one of the best dry white wines of France.

    The frost at the end of April 2017 devastated the vineyards of Bordeaux, not sparing those of Domaine de Chevalier. Nevertheless, a favourable climate during the summer months allowed the grapes to reach ideal ripeness. The harvests were carried out quite early, between September 11th and 29th, yielding grapes with a great balance between sugar and acidity, and concentrated flavours.

    The Domaine de Chevalier 2017 rosé is made from a blend of the same varietals used to produce the estate's famous Grand Vin: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. In the glass, this Bordeaux rosé displays a beautifully bright red currant colour. On the nose, the wines is very fresh, offering aromas of red berries and a hint of spice. On the palate, the wine reveals a juicy texture and wonderful freshness. The finish is long and complex, echoing its noble terroir of origin.
