Expert Reviews

95(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2013

Good bright, deep red.  Captivating scents of cassis, violet, minerals, bitter chocolate and wild herbs.  Extremely fine-grained but also very dense and chewy for young Cheval Blanc, showing great cabernet franc lift and perfume and a downright velvety texture.  This deep, multilayered wine was a bit dominated by its brooding tannins and big structure when first poured, but I found my score going steadily higher as the wine benefited from air.  My rating may look too conservative a decade from now--or three or four decades hence.
