    June 12, 2016 - As usual even a weaker vintage delivers from a fine producer in Bordeaux. Lovely purity of fruit and fresh acidity. Quite tart and very elegant. Class act.

    June 7, 2016 - Very old school, yet with great, lean, soft and elegant fruit, with a slightly sweet ending. Even some complexity.

    February 26, 2016 - Château Cheval Blanc vertical tasting dinner #2 (Vienna Cafe & Wine Bar): Blueberry, black cherry, tobacco, espresso, sous bois, vanilla. Impressive. Velvety mouthfeel, still with tannins to resolve. Medium length finish. A great 1994.

    December 26, 2015 - Although just starting to brick at the edges, still remarkably deep ruby for a 21 year-old Bordeaux. But the bouquet - what a bouquet ! Black berries, pine needle, pepper, saddle leather, forest floor, vanilla....exquisite ! And the palate is so beautifully balanced between fruit and velvety tannins - none of the harshness of 10 years ago - a beautifully integrated and balanced mid-palate, and a long, silky finish. For a lesser vintage, this wine is truly spectacular.

    July 25, 2015 - A great 1994 - interesting nose, bits of porcini, truffles, mouth tabacco and leather but all very fine. Good length and intensity.

    (Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) Very dense, dark colour. A lovely nose, full of maturing, slightly roasted fruit, but also lots of burnt-toffee toasted oak. A really lovely palate! Big, sweet, earthy and textured. Meaty. Great concentration. Structured, with ripe tannin. Sweet fruit and some oak here too. This is one set for the cellar in order to show its best. Needs five years.

    (Château Cheval Blanc) Mild, herbaceous nose; light bodied, elegant fruit, high acidity, but short, faint finish
