(From 2007 Vintage) Color dark red, purple and good intensity. Great fresh nose, floral and subtle pure, which grows very fruity agitation. Upon entry into the mouth, the wine shows its density. It gently and firmly settled on the tongue and grows very, very fruity, aromatic, oily, fine and subtle, with a medium to full mouth. It continues to melt in the mouth in the second half, and this final royal tannicity. It's very, very good and especially totally incrachable.
WA92NM Drink 2012 - 2018 Tasted at Cheval Blanc dinner at The Ledbury. The Cheval Blanc 1981 is a beautiful wine, far more charming than the 1982 served at the same dinner. It has a very pure, nonchalant nose where the Cabernet Franc determines its peppery aroma, married with singed leather and hot roof tiles. There is something joyful and carefree about the palate with tensile tannins, crisp acidity and a lovely wild strawberry finish. It is an “airy” Cheval Blanc, so light on its feet. Delicious! Drink now-2018+ Tasted November 2010.
