Tasting Notes

WCI100

If you are looking for a sex in the bottle type of wine, look no further. Incredibly sensuous, the texture combines the best elements of silk, cashmere and velvet. The perfectly ripe fruits range from black plums to even darker cherries. On the finish, it all comes together with the added nuances of licorice, plum liqueur, dark chocolate and cherry notes. You can drink this now. But if you really want the wine at its best, give it at least another 7 years OR SO.

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.
