Tasting Notes

Plenty of green-apple and pear aromas with vanilla and cream undertones. Kiwi, too. Medium to full body with oily character and a fruity undertone. Hints of vanilla and crushed stone. Flavorful finish. Second wine of Domaine de Chevalier. 65% sauvignon blanc and 35% semillon. Needs two or three years to come together. Better after 2024.

Starting with the 2019 L'Esprit De Chevalier Blanc, which is the second white of the château, it reveals a light gold hue to go with classy, classic Bordeaux Blanc notes of ripe lemon, honeyed pineapple, spice, and some chalky minerality. Medium-bodied and elegant on the palate, it shows the vibrant, pure, elegant style of the estate and is already hard to resist. It's well worth buying and drinking, especially if it helps you give the top wine a few years in the cellar.

The 2019 L’Esprit de Chevalier Blanc has a fresh nose of oyster-shell-tinged citrus fruit and a very faint hint of chai. The palate is well balanced, offering superb delineation and depth, flavors of green apple mixed with nectarine and wild peach, and a persistent finish. Excellent.
