Domaine de Chevalier ajalugu ulatub tagasi 17. sajandisse. Tänapäeval on see suurepärane veinimõis Bernard’ide perekonna omanduses ja veinimõisa juhib Olivier Bernard koos oma naise ja kahe lapsega. Olivier Bernard on alates 1983. aastast viinud läbi mitmeid uuendusi veinimõisas, et viima oma tootmine veel parematele tasemele. 2014. aastal olid nemad ühed esimestest suurtest tegijatest Bordeaux piirkonnas, kes hakkasid kasutama oma veinidel revolutsioonilist Diam korki. Domaine de Chevalier käsutuses on 120 hektarit maad, millest 65 hektarit on viinapuude all ja millest omakorda 63% on Cabernet Sauvignoni all. Viinapuude keskmiseks vanuseks on 30 aastat.
2009. aasta Domaine de Chevalier on erakordselt harmooniline, elegantne ja kompleksne vein.

Robert M. Parker, Jr. – 29-02-2012 – 95/100 Points
In late 2011, I had the last bottle in my cellar of the 1970 Domaine de Chevalier. Much to my surprise, it was still holding on to life and remained gorgeously complex in that ethereal Graves style. The 2009, one of the finest Domaine de Chevaliers yet produced, reveals a striking bouquet of burning embers, sweet cherry, black and red currant fruit, spice box, cedar and lead pencil shavings. The tannins are sweet in this fleshy, full-bodied offering. It is built on the notion of extraordinary harmony, elegance and complexity. While not the most concentrated or flamboyant 2009, its intense aromas are already reasonably evolved and its lusciousness and balance are terrific. Made from an interesting blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, its yields of 45 hectoliters per hectare were slightly higher than many of its neighbors achieved. Drink it over the next 25 years.
