2016 Domaine de Chevalier L'Esprit de Chevalier

Bordeaux | Bordeaux Blend
"Wonderful, fragrant blackberry and cherry nose with a delicate touch of oak. Concentrated and elegant with a beautiful balance of finely etched dry tannins and very bright acidity. Long, crisp and minerally finish with a ton of energy. Second wine of Domaine de Chevalier. A blend of 45 percent cabernet sauvignon, 45 percent merlot and 10 percent petit verdot. Try in 2021."

"The second wine of the estate is the 2016 L'Esprit de Chevalier, one of the top second wines out there. Offering a deep ruby color as well as a classic Graves bouquet of mulled cherry and blackberry fruits, leafy herbs, tobacco, and loamy earth, it’s medium to full-bodied, textured, and loaded with character. Drink it over the coming decade or so."

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 L'Esprit de Chevalier offers up exuberant black cherries, blackberry and warm plums scents with touches of baking spices and tobacco. Medium-bodied, it has a firm, grainy texture and plenty of freshness supporting the generous, juicy black fruit in the mouth, finishing spicy."
90 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
