Description

An intense white Pessac-Leognan with a fruity, juicy and refreshing character

The estate

Owned by the Bernard family since 1983, the magnificent Domaine de Chevalier stands at the top of the greatest Bordeaux Classified Growths. The estate is situated in the heart of the Pessac-Leognan appellation, which is located in a green setting south of Bordeaux. L’Esprit de Chevalier is the second wine of the estate.

The vineyard

Domaine de Chevalier boasts a rare vineyard, comprising 50 hectares of red vines. The vineyard is planted in gravelly soil with clayey-gravelly subsoils. Since 1986, the young vines have been designed to ripen the berries that make part of the blend of the estate’s second wine, L’Esprit de Chevalier.

The vinification and aging

Following the manual harvest in crates, during which 3 to 5 meticulous sortings by maturity level were carried out, settling and then fermentation in barrels took place. Finally, the wine ages, one-third of it in new First Wine barrels for 10 months on its lees, with some stirring of the lees.

The blend

Sauvignon blanc (60%), semillon (40%).

The tasting

Color

The L'Esprit de Chevalier 2020 has a pale gold color with vivid reflections.

Nose

The aromatic bouquet expresses floral freshness combined with refined intensity. The peach and exotic white fruits pair wonderfully with citrus fruits and herbs.

Palate

The L'Esprit de Chevalier 2020 reveals itself to be an intense wine with a fruity, juicy and refreshing character. The acidity combines with a fleshy structure, soft and lively at the same time. The complex aromas highlight flavors of juicy white fruit and delicate, concentrated aromatic herbs. Harmony and a sublime contained power give this cuvée its unique style.
