From: Bordeaux 2019: The Southwold Tasting (Feb 2023)
The 2019 Esprit de Chevalier has a peppery nose, just missing a little cohesion, smoky and a little rustic. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, black pepper and a ferrous finish. Moderate length. Not the best in show, but it does have plenty of personality and charm. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.
