Domaine de Chevalier is located in the commune of Leognan, 17 km south of Bordeaux, it is one of the few estates of Bordeaux, called the domain and Chateau (Domain - is most common in Burgundy).

The origins of the Domain des Chevaliers can be traced back in 1763, as evidenced by the map drawn by Pierre de Belleymom. Earth in those days belonged to a certain Chibaley or Chivaley (which means "knight" on Gascon dialect), he produced about 13,500 liters of wine a year.
