Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot.

Deep plum purple colour, this has some pretty tight tannins, its structure a little less sleek overall than the first wine. You feel the tannins weighing heavier through the mid palate, but at the same time the bilberry fruits, coffee bean wash, and enjoyably chewy tannins give an old-school charm. 90 Jane Anson

The 2020 L'Esprit de Chevalier is a fabulous second wine. Deep, vibrant and full of character, the 2020 pulses with energy. Sweet black cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather, licorice and spice infuse this succulent, wonderfully juicy Pessac-Léognan. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem, and why should they? 91-93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
