A beautiful vintage, dry and fresh, expressing all the typicity of a grand Cheval Blanc. Complex, balanced, dense and fresh, he is made for a long ageing potential.
An initially discreet nose the reveals complex aromas very quickly. A palette of red and black fruits, such as cherry, raspberry, blackberry and blackcurrant dominate. In addition, there are abundant floral notes of violet, rose, lily and peony. As the wine gradually opens it reveals almost caramelised notes with pepper and spices. A vibrant and clean nose. The attack is creamy and mouth filling, developing into the mid-palate with powerful, round tannins which are both rich and elegant, voluminous and refined. The balance between the tannins and acidity lend freshness and fruitiness and an extremely long finish. The aromatic intensity of this Cheval Blanc is impressive.
