    December 20, 2015 - Cheval Blanc Vertical Tasting (Old Swiss House, Lucerne, Switzerland): Mature brick red. Nose was dominated by leather and mushroom notes. Good length but too much acidity. Dry and just one dimensional. Drink now

    December 3, 2015 - Quarterly wine group dinner. Good fill and cork came out in 2 pieces. Good aged Bordeaux. On the lighter side, did not fade through a 3 hour dinner. Lacked punch on the finish, but otherwise quite enjoyable. Was overshadowed by the '66 Cheval served side by side.

    July 8, 2015 - At a White Horse Tavern in the north country: A lesser wine, I suppose, than the 1959, less concentrated, but on the evening I preferred this for the 1959; quite cool, elegant, cab franc showing through, very mineral and discrete in a good way. Better with air.

    April 21, 2015 - This bottle of 1962 Cheval Blanc really surpassed my memories of the wine, bursting from the decanter with an utterly classic Cheval mélange of mulberries, menthol, gravelly soil tones, cedar and hints of leather. On the palate this is wonderfully focussed and pure, with bright acids, melted tannins and a really long and compelling finish. This particular bottle was in a wonderful place, vibrant and full of life!
