      Tasting Notes and Description
      "The 2018 L' Esprit de Chevalier Blanc is a little closed to begin ,unfurling to offer elegant lemongrass, fresh ginger and orange blossom scents over a core of grapefruit and white peaches plus a waft of crushed stones. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers super intense, vibrant citrus and floral layers with a racy backbone and satiny texture, finishing with a persistent spicy kick."
      90-92 points Lisa Perotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate (April 2019)

      Domaine de Chevalier is renowned for its ability to produce great wines even in unfashionable vintages thanks to its unique terroir and a draconian selection in the vineyard and the cellar. In fact, this philosophy at times requires vineyard workers to carry out five waves of picking in order to pick only the ripest possible grapes.

      As for the dry white Esprit de Chevalier, this barrel-aged second wine is rich, lively, and complex with very pure aromas. Esprit de Chevalier blanc is a fruity, classy wine, but more open than the grand vin and therefore a treat to drink young. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, that changes with the prevailing vintage conditions.
