Château Cheval Blanc St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

$425

Intense aromas of tar, blackberry and wet earth, with just a hint of tobacco and flowers. Full-bodied, chewy and long. Extracted, yet turns caressing and velvety in texture. Broad-shouldered and muscular for this estate. This is better than the 2000... Wine Spectator

Still needs time based on this bottle. Tannins still not fully resolved. But the potential is there. Tasted at a wonderful IFWS dinner at the Leela in Mumbai

MAGNUM Wonderful perfumed nose. Complex aromatics of savory spices and white pepper and wonderful tube rose perfume an a core of blueberry and black currents

2 hour decant (some chunky and cloudy sediment). A splended dark purple garnet color with little signs of aging. On the nose: BAM! Expressive nose with that sweet aged Bordeaux perfume, black plum, wet forest floor, floral, smoke, slight barn yard funk, and minty vanilla. Taste: A fresh, smooth medium to full body wine with blackberry, tea, orange peel, cedar, currants, plum, and a chocolate coffee medium plus finish. Wish the taste matched the nose, but drinks decently right now with the decant...pop one if you got em!!!

A more typical vintage year, this 2004 is balanced, poised, and elegant. Anise, red fruit elements (cherry), black berry; subtle tertiary notes (cooked blackberry, mushroom, wet leaves on a forest floor). Medium acid and body, silky tannins, the length goes on and on. A deliciously voluptuous beauty.
