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 n

The blueberry and blackberry character and bouquet of violets is off the charts. Full body, the Cabernet Franc dominates the blend now, with so much dark fruits, minerals and flowers with hints of spices. It is a very powerful and linear CB and shows... James Suckling.

56% cabernet franc, 44% merlot. 100% new oak. This big, ripe Cheval displays intense aromas of camphor, cassis, raspberry and leather, framed by notes of earth. Very powerful on the palate, flavors of chocolate and coffee emerge, along with beautiful... Alex Lallos. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Cheval Blanc 3000ml

56% Cabernet Franc 44% Merlot. Meaty and savoury. Almost austere on the nose relative to how young Cheval usually tastes. Very youthful but aromatic then lovely lusciousness on the palate. Recalls great old Chevals with that seductive freshness. Lovely dry finish. (Blend for 2009 was exactly the opposite.) Coulure affected Merlot in 2010. Lost lots of volume on Merlot. Great structure but also lovely floral seductive aroma. Opens out in the glass in the most convincing manner. Presumably they
