2021 L'Esprit de Chevalier  (Pessac-Léognan) 89
Cigar wrapper, spice, forest floor, plums and the essence of smoke are found in the nose and in the medium-bodied, bright, fresh, red berry oriented palate. There is a nice crisp accent with hints of pepper and salinity on the mid-palate that you also enjoy in the finish. Drink from 2023-2029. 88-90

2020 L'Esprit de Chevalier  (Pessac-Léognan) 92
Smoke, tobacco leaf, herbs, spice and red currants are instantly recognizable on the nose. Medium-bodied, fresh and vibrant, with juicy, bright, red fruits, lift and elegance on the palate and in the finish. This is a nice baby Domaine de Chevalier. This is perfect for near term drinking while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop. 91-93 Pts

Medium-bodied, fresh, soft, forward, lighter-styled Pessac Leognan that focuses on its silky, sweet soft red fruits and earthy, herbed, smoked berry finish. There is a definite resemblance between this second wine and the Grand Vin. So enjoy it on release and over the next 7-9 years while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop. 90 Pts

Bright, fresh, crisp and juicy yellow citrus with bits of orange peel, green apple and pear added in for complexity. I am really liking the sense of sense of mineraity in the finish. Enjoy this gorgeous second wine while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop.

Smoky dark red berries with cigar box, herbs, forest leaf and currants create an impressive perfume. On the palate, the wine is soft, silky, polished, refined and leaves with a juicy mouthful of fruit, dark cocoa, herbs and espresso beans. This is perfect for near term drinking while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop.
