Cabernet Franc, Merlot
Chateau Cheval Blanc, , St.Emilion, Bordeaux, France, 750ml
A true representative of the exquisite Château Cheval Blanc style, this vintage is concentrated, with a silky texture. Its current balance and purity hint at its future potential. It is one of the more plump, opulent Cheval Blancs made over recent vintages, and its forwardness, lusciousness and complexity seemingly suggest this wine is on a fast evolutionary track. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple/plum colour, a medium to full-bodied opulence, a sumptuous mid-palate (atypical for the vintage), and a lush, heady finish. It is a super, complex, evolved.
