Only 60% of the harvest was utilized in this marvelous blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc. As always the 2006 Cheval Blanc is made in a lighter more elegant style based on finesse purity and beautiful nuances. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by scents of crushed rocks menthol raspberries cherries and assorted blue as well as black fruits. An impeccable integration of new oak medium body terrific palate penetration and purity and light tannins suggest it will be drinkable in 2-3 years but it should put on considerable weight because of its large Cabernet Franc component. While the 2006 may not eclipse the 2005 2000 or 1998 it is not far off in terms of quality and longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
