Château Cheval Blanc Saint-Émilion 1er Grand Cru Classe
(1996 Vintage) 1982 was an exceptional year, where quantity and quality went hand in hand. Cheval Blanc 1982 is rich and full and is among the best vintages of the second half of the twentieth century.
Tanzer"Good full red. Profound, multidimensional nose combines redcurrant, plums, raspberry, cherry, mocha and humus: really quite singular. Wonderful sweetness and depth of flavor; lush but with a firm spine. Already offers compelling inner-mouth perfume, but I suspect this wine will soon close down. Finishes with terrific length and very suave, sweet tannins that coat the teeth."
