L’Esprit de Chevalier Rouge
The L’Esprit de Chevalier Rouge has been designed to be drunk young, however has the complexity of a much older wine.
On the palate there are notes of ripe red fruits, berries and mineral undertones. Moreover there is an added depth from the oak ageing, creating cedar and leather flavours.
Domaine de Chevalier is renowned for its ability to produce great wines even in unfashionable vintages. This is 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. This is in order to pick only the ripest possible grapes.
Furthermore, as of 1986, the planting of young vines led to the creation of both a red and white second wine called Esprit de Chevalier.
In addition this includes vats that do not have quite the structure and focus of the grand vin as well as wine made from young vines,
Vats that go into red Esprit de Chevalier must nevertheless be complex, well-balanced and well-structured. Above all, they must be elegant enough to be in keeping with Chevalier’s image.
Esprit de Chevalier is a charming red wine with many of the same qualities as the grand vin. However with the added advantage that it can be enjoyed earlier.
“ What matters most is the philosophy behind the long term commitment I made to Chevalier more than thirty years ago. This I have deepened and never deviated from ever since.”
“The philosophy that I have instilled here, with the help of my team, all revolves around quality and balance. Cost has never been the foremost consideration… The quest for quality is an ongoing priority here…” – Olivier Bernard
