Description

This is the second wine of Domaine de Chevalier, one of the few crus classés of Graves classified for both its red and white wines. The domaine is a single 51-hectare block in the far south of the appellation. L’Esprit comes from young vines; the 2016 is an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with 10% Petit Verdot. The nose entices with blackberry, cherry, leather and tobacco. The palate is medium bodied with fine, silky tannins. Enjoy it with steak frites or a venison burger. Drink now to 2028.
