Espirit de Chevalier 1999

90 points

This is the 2nd wine of Domaine de Chevalier in a vintage hit by rain at harvest time. Yet it is lovely gentle even graceful wine. Just a touch of sawdusty oak. Very much the house style just lighter.

Which reminds me that I’ve hardly ever had a poor 1999 Bordeaux. Surely an under-rated vintage.

Drink now but should hold for a few more years.
