Château Cheval Blanc Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2008

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

This isn't shy about letting a tobacco leaf note weave in and out, while the core of red currant, damson plum and bitter cherry grows and fleshes out as this airs. The long finish lets mineral, red licorice and mesquite check in as well. Shows ... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Cheval Blanc 750ml

An outstanding terroir and unusual proportions of Cabernet Franc and Merlot give this great wine an absolutely unique flavour. Chateau Cheval Blanc has had a greater number of outstanding vintages than any other classified great growth over the past century.Another unusual characteristic of Cheval Blanc is that once it reaches its peak, it maintains it for a very long time. This admirable wine is powerful, soft, rich, round and silky. It has tremendous fruit and elegance as well as exceptional quality from year to year. This timeless and superb wine is like no other.
