    June 13, 2017 - Bien décu par rapport à mes attentes. Il y a bcp de cuir avec une pointe végétal. La texture est très soyeuse, mais aucune puissance pour ce grand bordeaux. La bouteille est bien conservé mais fatigué! Pas un bon QPR dans sa courbe de garde!

  • Etienne U3R Does not like this wine:

    June 10, 2017 - Couleur ambrée. Cuir cuir cuir. Végétal, pas très puissant et aucun tannin. La bouteille est fatigué depuis longtemps. Je m'attendais à bcp plus de ce vin de renommée grandiose. Belle leçon de ne pas attendre mes bordeaux trop longtemps.

  • Jean-Philippe M Likes this wine:

    June 9, 2017 - Je suis énormément déçu... je cherchais un défaut, mais malheureusement le vin est bien en santé. Le vin a une texture onctueuse, peu d'acidité, beaucoup de cuir, de fleurs et de truffes. Pour Cheval Blanc, je m'attendais a un vieux vin, mais avec une puissance et une finesse exeptionnelle, ce qui n'est pas dutout le cas. Si vous avez une bouteille de ce millésime, buvez-la !!

    1-2/5 (généreux)

    February 11, 2017 - Color is med garnet, nose has plenty of leather, floral and truffles aroma. Ample fruit on palate with refreshing acidity and fruit sweetness. Tannin is smooth with a slightly dry finish. Cedar and tobacco from mid palate, overall more about elegant than power.

    November 21, 2016 - Clear mature mahogany color, after some initial funk out came a lovely bouquet of red fruits, laced with leather, spice and earthy scents. Elegant smooth texture, light bodied yet complex and persistent. Balanced, resolved, clearly mature but still an engaging and delicious CB
