Black cherry notes. Deeper in flavor than some of the older vintages I tried this night. Cedar and sandalwood come through as well. Very rich and with good mouthfeel - this wine has a lot of power. Coffee, hazelnut flavors on the finish. Still shy, with rich tannins on the finish. My favorite vintage of the tasting.

...Nose shows an almost liqueur-like ripeness, along with notes of bitter chocolate and menthol; a great expression of ripe but youthfully unevolved cabernet franc. Extremely dense and pure but still quite tight and showing a minty austerity. Wonderf... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1998 Cheval Blanc 750ml

This blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as classic aromas of menthol, plums, mulberries, and assorted black fruits. The oak, texture, acidity, and tannin are all beautifully integrated. While full-bodied, elegant, concentrated, and impeccably balanced, it requires several years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.


Winemaker's Notes:

Petit Cheval is seductive in its youth, being enjoyable from the moment it is bottled, as well as being endowed with a capacity to age.
