Cheval Blanc Premier 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: The 2011 Cheval Blanc is one of the more plump, opulent and sexy Cheval Blancs made over recent vintages, and its forwardness, lusciousness and complexity seemingly suggest this wine is on a fast evolutionary track. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple/plum color, a medium to full-bodied opulence, a sumptuous mid-palate (atypical for the vintage), and a lush, heady finish. It is a super, complex, evolved Cheval Blanc that can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years. Bravo! 04/14 "A beautiful nose of ripe black fruits such blackberries, as well as cocoa, black truffle and mint. Full body with a solid core of very refined tannins that lasts for minutes. Very refined texture, especially for the vintage. 57% cabernet franc and 43% merlot....94" JS 02/14 "Offers a loamy, dense feel, with the vintage's briary grip tumbled with dark plum, blackberry and black currant fruit. Anise and tobacco notes fill out the finish, which expands steadily with air, showing added range and echoes of bittersweet cocoa and tobacco. Seems to have a lot in reserve...94" WS 03/14

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

Very perfumy, with lovely red and black fruit thats pure and refined. Theres a creamy feel, with hints of bergamot, cassis and toasted spice. Long and very suave through the finish. Well put together. Tasted non-blind.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Cheval Blanc 6000ml
