    April 14, 2017 - Resolved and needs to be drunk. Leather, tobacco and stewed fruit nose. Slightly thin across palate. Behind Petrus and Trot in 75.

    September 23, 2016 - Right Bank Premier Grand Cru Classe "A" Bordeaux tasting (Karl's house): Medium ruby color. A spicy nose of red fruit, raspberry, earth, tobacco, and herbs. Medium bodied, and still a bit tannic. Good length on the finish, but has a hint of bitterness. An austere vintage of Cheval Blanc.

    April 9, 2016 - Wonderful nose with sweet fruits and CabFranc-herbs, perfectly balanced, elegant, silky and creamy. A ripe Cheval Blanc at its best, but more on the sunset-side of life. Good bottles like this one will be a treat for at least a decade more.

    January 17, 2016 - The nose and palate are both more muted compared to the last bottle with exquisite focused elements. If the last bottle was the milky way, this is one with a cloudier sky. Elements of aged bordeaux such as leather, dried flower, dried fruits are present, but the acidity was not very vibrant, and the structure is kinda muddled, which all results in a shorter finish than the last bottle.

    December 20, 2015 - Cheval Blanc Vertical Tasting (Old Swiss House, Lucerne, Switzerland): Nose shows mature red berries, prunes and hints of dark beef stock (demi glace). Still a nice sweetness and quite long and rich. At the same time there is too much acidity and dry tannins. Drink now, fully mature.
