Tasting Notes

The 2015 Esprit de Chevalier has an attractive bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, crushed chalk and cedar aromas that feel focused and intense. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity, quite elegant in style with a smooth and rounded finish. Delightful. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

A brilliant ruby in the glass, this has a ripe, pure nose of black cherries and plums, laced with light notes of toast and nutmeg. There is a blend of succulence and earthy Pessac character. The palate is plump and round, with redolent red and black fruits at the core. The tannins are fine and ripe, a subtle structure that makes this perfect to drink now. The glossy fruit has no hard edges, and is accented by subtle spice. A touch of earthy smokiness lingers on the finish. This offers a great early chance to taste the high quality of both Domaine de Chevalier and the 2015 vintage. Superb.
