"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)

"The second wine of Domaine de Chevalier is no slouch and is well worth seeking out. The 2016 L'Esprit de Chevalier Blanc offers vibrant notes of white peach and citrus pith as well as a medium-bodied, fresh, crisp style on the palate. It has terrific balance and is a beauty." (JD)
