Description

The indulgence and freshness of a red wine from Pessac-Leognan

The estate

Owned by the Bernard family since 1983, the magnificent Domaine de Chevalier is one of the greatest Crus Classes amongst Bordeaux wines. The estate is situated at the heart of the Pessac-Leognan appellation, which is located in a lush green landscape towards the south of Bordeaux. L’Esprit de Chevalier is the estate’s second wine.

The vineyard

Domaine de Chevalier overlooks a rare vineyard comprising 55 hectares of red vines. The vineyard lies on a gravelly terroir upon clay-gravel subsoils. Since 1986, the young vines there are intended for ripening the berries which contribute to the estate’s second wine, L’Esprit de Chevalier.

Winemaking and aging

Manual harvests in small crates, followed by meticulous sorting at the vine and the cellar before and after destemming. The grapes are vinified in three vats (stainless steel, concrete and wood) to refine the work done plot-by-plot, the extraction and the blend. The wine then ages in the first wine’s barrels, a third of which are new, for 14 months, with stirring on lees for the first 4 months.

Blend

Esprit de Chevalier 2017 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (25%) and Petit Verdot (5%).

Tasting

Color

The wine is a beautiful, bright and intense Bordeaux red.

Nose

Dense and fruity, the nose mixes fragrances of black cherry and raspberry with subtle notes of fresh spices, flowers and pepper.

Palate

Round and balanced, the palate seduces with its delicate concentration, its tannins, its freshness and its exceptional length.

Keeping

Available from today, this Esprit de Chevalier 2017 can wait in the cellar for some years to develop its entire aromatic palette.
