2016 Esprit de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac Leognan

Tasting Notes

Neal Martin 90/100
The 2016 Esprit de Chevalier has a high-toned nose of vivacious red and blue fruit, quite floral in style but nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. Well balanced, approachable and refined, and smooth toward the finish. White pepper and clove linger on the aftertaste. Enjoy this over the next decade. Vinous.com Reviewed Jan 2019

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate 90/100
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. Wine Advocate-Parker. Drink 2019 - 2030

James Suckling 92/100
Wonderful, fragrant blackberry and cherry nose with a delicate touch of oak. Concentrated and elegant with a beautiful balance of finely etched dry tannins and very bright acidity. Long, crisp and minerally finish with a ton of energy. Second wine of Domaine de Chevalier.
