Coming out of a relatively dormant state, this 2000 is a spectacular Cheval Blanc. Of recent vintages, I think only the 2009 can give it a run for its money. A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc, the wine has a sweet nose of menthol, melted licorice, boysenberry, blueberry, and cassis. A broad wine with compelling purity, a layered texture, and sweet tannin, with hints of coffee and earth in the background, this is by far the best Cheval Blanc since 1990 and before 2009. It is a legend in the making and can actually be drunk now, as the tannins have nearly melted away. This is a beauty with incredibly complex aromatics. Drink it over the next 25-30 years.

The Cheval Blanc 2000 continues to age at a glacial pace although the aromatics are open with lovely blackberry and graphite scents here augmented with a hint of undergrowth and autumn leaves. The palate is full-bodied with precise poised tannins that give this wine wonderful focus and drive. It is very fresh with a core of opaque dense black fruit at its heart. There is a sense of compactness to this Saint Emilion that urges you to cellar it for another decade

Fresh mineral berry and earth aromas. Decadent. Full-bodied yet refined and silky with a lovely long finish that goes on and on with tobacco berry cherry and spices. It s not the 1998 but it s very good indeed. Best after 2006. -JS Wine Spectator.
