Expert Reviews

97 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012

Bright red-ruby.  Flamboyant yet classy aromas and flavors of raspberry, mocha, coffee and herbs.  Like liquid velvet in the mouth, but with great lift and perfume giving the wine outstanding inner-palate verve.  Wonderfully rich and classically dry Cheval with noble tannins, strong mineral energy and great lingering aromatic character.  Atypically full and approachable for young Cheval Blanc but I'm not complaining.  One of the longest wines of the vintage, and among my handful of favorites.
