The entry-level white from Domaine de Chevalier, the 2018 L'Esprit De Chevalier is smoking good, and at some point, could make you wonder about the rationale for spending the extra money for the top wine. Ripe lemon, citrus, sliced pineapple, and subtle minerality all give way to a medium-bodied, rounded, beautifully textured white that’s already hard to resist. The top wine is more chiseled and refined and will age better, but this is fabulous today. The blend is 60% Sauvignon and 40% Sémillon. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 L' Esprit de Chevalier Blanc is a little closed to begin, unfurling to offer elegant lemongrass, fresh ginger and orange blossom scents over a core of grapefruit and white peaches plus a waft of crushed stones. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers super intense, vibrant citrus and floral layers with a racy backbone and satiny texture, finishing with a persistent spicy kick.
