Le Petit Cheval Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Visual Aspect: A deep ruby color with violet highlights. Nose: A very intense bouquet: roasted coffee beans, grilled almonds and vanilla with good fruit flavors of cherries and strawberry jam and exotic hints of coconut. Palate: On the palate, the wine is soft and round with lots of fruit flavor and remarkable freshness. The finish is long lasting with oak flavors predominant.

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