Just like its red counterpart, L'Esprit de Chevalier Blanc is one of Bordeaux's best value second wines, offering a big part of the Domaine de Chevalier character, just made from younger vines and designed for earlier drinking. While most such wines are made almost entirely from Sauvignon Blanc, L'Esprit de Chevalier has a large dose (45%) of Sémillon which elevates it above the everyday.
Pale greenish straw. Lovely Sémillon in the ascendant. Really nice, dry white bordeaux with waxiness and interest without the searing acidity of the grand vin when young.
