En Primeur L’Esprit de Chevalier Blanc will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Domaine de Chevalier is renowned for its ability to produce great wines even in unfashionable vintages thanks to its unique terroir and a draconian selection in the vineyard and the cellar. In fact, this philosophy at times requires vineyard workers to carry out five waves of picking in order to pick only the ripest possible grapes.
In 1986, the planting of young vines led to the creation of both a red and white second wine called Esprit de Chevalier. This includes vats that do not have quite the structure and focus of the grand vin as well as wine made from young vines.
This barrel-aged second wine is rich, lively, and complex with very pure aromas. L’Esprit de Chevalier Blanc is a fruity, classy wine, but more open than the grand vin and therefore a treat to drink young.
Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend
