Cheval Blanc 100js 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

"This structured and powerful red is finally coming out its sleep. It shows intense aromas of dried fruits, mushrooms, forest floor and berries. It's full-bodied, very dense and velvety, and has an outstanding, ripe and richly fruity finish. A wine that harkens back to the legendary 1947 Cheval Blanc...100." JamesSuckling.com 9/13.

Château Cheval Blanc:
Château Cheval Blanc is one of the rare Bordeaux properties to stay in a single family for over 150 years.

Elegant spice and red fruit blend. Flavors are mellow, but still have an herbaceous bite to them and a good backbone of fresh acidity.

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.

...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. Wonderful acids give the wine superb clarity of flavor. This will require another decade to unfold. Finishes impressively persistent and juicy. Drink 2010 through 2030. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Subtle complex and refined with aromas of cherry licorice mineral berry and other sweet ripe fruit. Full-bodied and compacted with masses of fine silky tannins. Long long finish. Best after 2010. 8 330 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator.
