"The 2016 L' Esprit de Chevalier Blanc features lemon meringue pie, lime cordial and orange blossoms scents with a touch of fennel seed. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with mouthwatering citrusy layers, and a touch of savoriness comes through on the finish." (WA)

"The 2016 Esprit de Chevalier has a focused, Golden Delicious apple and apricot blossom bouquet. The harmonious, well-balanced palate offers good weight and lovely orange zest and quince notes toward the classy finish. Excellent." (VM)

"Layered and dense with lots of pear and sliced-apple character. Full and juicy. Second wine of DC." (JS)
