James Suckling writes:  This is an extremely polished and refined young wine with gorgeous blackberry, blackcurrant, licorice, dark-chocolate and bark character. It’s full-bodied with ever so fine tannins and a long, long finish. Fantastic second wine of Domaine de Chevalier. Try after 2026.  - James Suckling 95

Jane Anson writes:  A serious second wine with real grip and fresh fruit, richly extracted and with good quality, firm tannins. Austerity takes precedence over the fruit a little, but it's a good wine worth looking out for.  Drinking 2022 -2031.  - Decanter 90
Antonio Galloni writes:  The 2018 L'Esprit de Chevalier is a gorgeous second wine from Domaine de Chevalier. Soft, pliant and so expressive, the 2018 is simply impeccable. The purity of the flavors is striking. Cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, mint and dried herbs add striking perfume to a core of supple red berry fruit. In a word: fabulous.  - Vinous 92

Lisa Perrotti-Brown writes:  The 2018 L'Esprit de Chevalier is deep garnet-purple colored with a nose of black and red currants, black raspberries and earth with tobacco and underbrush hints. Medium-bodied, the palate is firm and grainy with lively, muscular fruit and an earthy finish.  - Robert Parker Wine Advocate
