...This Cheval Blanc exceeds my lofty expectations at birth. It has a very ripe blueberry, cassis and violet tinged nose with superb definition... Touches of smoky bacon from the Cabernet Franc. The palate has robust tannins, immense depth and concentration. This wine is like Aragorn cutting a swathe through a tribe of orcs... eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

One of the most prized Right Bank Bordeaux from the legendary Cheval Blanc, these were in great shape and strutting their stuff, both plenty open but indicating to me decades of life ahead of them. The 2000 was especially complex, showing more range in complexity with a little more length and density. The 2005 was concentrated and pure, brimming with black and red fruit, licorice and a trace of rock and mineral buried under the fat of a generous weather vintage. #chevalblanc #saintemilion #cabernetfranc #merlot

Dark chocolate and dark fruit nose. Blackberries, black raspberries, black plum transiting into red fruits, herbs, spice. Still a baby.
