Tasting Notes

WA100

Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Cheval Blanc is fairly shut down at this stage, offering up subtle glimpses of an incredibly complex array of aromas including smoked meats, yeast extract, cigar box and new leather with dried mulberries and crème de cassis at the core plus a waft of potpourri. Full-bodied, big, opulent and built like a brick house, it has super firm tannins and great freshness, packed solid with muscular fruit, finishing very long. Tightly wound and oh-so-youthful, yet perfectly formed and poised to be a blockbuster, readers should give this incredible vintage about decade in the cellar before broaching.

The Winery

Cheval Blanc

Firmly established in St. Emilion and a stone’s throw from Pomerol, Cheval Blanc wines are rich yet never heavy and are full of complex, powerful perfumes paired with textures often compared to silk and velvet. It's terroir on the border of Pomerol and St. Emilion produces wines with characteristics of each region with the smooth opulence of Pomerol and the flamboyance of St. Emilion making this wine a true treasure. And since every genesis needs its defining moment, it was the idea of marrying Merlot, the traditional variety used in Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, with the Cabernet Franc that gave birth to Cheval Blanc.

Vintages to look for are: 2012, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2005, 2001, 1995, 1990, 1985, 1983, 1982, 1964, 1955, 1953, 1950, 1949.
