    May 20, 2013 - Served from magnum this is quite smoky on the nose to begin with. Has some perfumed fruits, sweet tobacco and cedar notes as it breathes. It is plump and full without a hair out of place. Tannins are relatively soft and it is a classy wine. It doesn’t have the most depth or length but is beautifully proportioned and a pleasure to drink.

    December 19, 2009 - I bring my last bottle of Cheval Blanc 1980 to test not because of Ryoko's Birthday but for good friends at the Christmas time.

    The nose's still seductive, clean fruit, elegant, fresh but can not hold on that long in the glass. Sweet, soft tannin, smooth, very fine fine wine indeed. Aftertaste is not complex but nice.

    It seems the most perfect condition of my 6 bottles of them.

    After 1.45 hrs, more fuller-bodied, not too sweet, delicious....I like it a lot !!!

    Testing along with Ch. Magdelaine 1982.............A Nice Pair..................

    Drink now - 2013.......................90+/100..............................

    March 1, 2006 - I drank many bottles of this wine. I prefer 1980 than 1986, 1989, 1995.

    It likes Burgundy wine. Strawberry, clean and soft. Very smooth and fine. Nice aftertaste. All the most of Ryoko's Birthyear 1980 wines, Petrus is No. 1 and Cheval Blance is No. 2 for me.

    Drink it now - maybe in decline
