A delicious and fresh great red Pessac-Léognan wine

The estate

Owned by the Bernard family since 1983, the beautiful Domaine de Chevalier is one of the top classified growths in Bordeaux. The estate is located in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, in a green haven to the south of Bordeaux. L'Esprit de Chevalier is the estate’s Second Wine.

The vineyard

A benchmark among Pessac-Léognan wines, Domaine de Chevalier watches over a rare vineyard that comprises 45 hectares of red vines. The vineyard lies on a gravelly soil upon a clay and gravel subsoil.

Vinification and ageing

The hand-picked grapes are sorted in the vineyard and in the cellar before and after destemming. One of the two vat rooms comprises concrete "tulip vats" to refine the extraction and blending. Aged in barrels for 14 months.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (45%)

Merlot (45%)

Petit Verdot (10%).

The tasting

Colour

The colour is dense and deep.

Nose

Fruity and complex, the nose presents intense notes of red and black fruits, spices and liquorice.

Palate

Elegant and concentrated, the palate smoothly combines a full structure with fine, supple tannins. This wine seduces with its freshness throughout the tasting experience and leads to a long and persistent finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 L'Esprit de Chevalier offers up exuberant black cherries, blackberry and warm plums scents with touches of baking spices and tobacco. Medium-bodied, it has a firm, grainy texture and plenty of freshness supporting the generous, juicy black fruit in the mouth, finishing spicy.
