Red fruit , herbs ; red flowers , mineral, and a touch of oak. On the palate elegant yet powerful with some tannin . A more masculine style of Cheval Blanc but very good and youthful still!

Pretty, old school, Bordeaux. Classy old lady face powder, iron, old wood, underbrush.

If I drank this by itself, it would have been great, but next nearly 20 other vintages of the same wine, it was obvious that it had seen better days.
