Chateau Cheval-Blanc 2012
St-Emilion, 1GCCA
Understated, fresh, elegant nose. Beautifully pure fruit on the palate - blueberry and blackberry notes. Plump mid-palate then lovely, silky tannins. A notch better than a very good 2011. The winemaker compares it to 2000. 18.75/20pts ( 95+/100pts)
Drink: 2020 - 2040
