Vintage Tastings

    (Cheval Blanc) The first wine was served as a welcome, and what a welcome it was. We were given a clue that it was a 100 year old wine, so we knew it was from 1911. It still had a great, classic nose of sweet cassis, nut, leather and tobacco. Its palate was round, seductively tender, with flavors of light citrus and more tobacco. Juha also noted ‘leather’ on the palate, and the one lady in attendance, Esse, admired its ‘fragrant’ quality. Having had the 1911 Cos d’Estournel two nights prior, this was a real treat, and another testament to the vintage. ‘Silky and smooth’ were used to describe the qualities of 1911, and while its tannins were indeed melted, the acidity still remained. There was a chocolaty edge to it for sure, and I was convinced for a bit that it was Mouton, most certainly a Pauillac. It wasn’t either. ‘Varnish’ and ‘strawberry’ came from the eager and actively participating crowd. Its really elegant style charmed most, and I was stunned to see this be a 1911 Cheval Blanc. It was such a Left Bank impersonator! I learned that it was tradition for Pekka to have as the first wine of the first great tasting of the year a 100 year-old wine. See you next year, my friend :)
