Domaine de Chevalier consists of 80 hectares, 35 of which are currently under vine. The vineyard benefits from ideal sun exposure thanks to its north-south orientation. The vines are relatively young (average 20 years old) due to replanting and the fact that the vineyard has frequently been hit by frost. The grape varieties have been carefully chosen to make the most of the soil. The ideal proportions were discovered by trial and error and are now definitive. The white wine is made from 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon. The red wine consists of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc (not counting the tiny plot of Petit Verdot planted in 1995).
