Description

A fruity, structured and dense Pessac-Leognan wine

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 winemaking and aging

After manual harvests in crates, during which a meticulous sort occurs at the vineyard, the berries are once again sorted at the cellar both before and after destermming. The grapes are vinified in four vats; one in steel, one in steel-aluminium, one in a conical concrete vat and one in a wooden vat. The wine then ages in barrel of the first wine, a third of which are new, for 14 months, with stirring on the lees for the first 4 months.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (35%).

Tasting

Color

The 2020 L’Esprit de Chevalier reveals a very intense color which is black at the core.

Nose

The aromatic bouquet conveys outstanding depth and ripened red and black berries. A touch of spices and fresh humus is coupled with notes of heather.

Palate

The 2020 L’Esprit de Chevalier is a fruity, structured and dense wine. The perfect overall balance allows for excellent aging potential.
