    July 6, 2014 - Firstly a smokiness that is completely different from Margaux. I have not had anything like this before. Vegetal and plant scents. Bell peppers and lots of terroir. Palette matches the soft Merlot softening the nose. Love how this is such an interesting wine. Not as tannic as Marguax and more approachable but still tight. Very smooth. Glad to taste. I would not buy but appreciate it's quality and beauty. Definitely more masculine. Most interesting of the premiere grand crus I got to taste. 94-95pts

    November 3, 2010 - Strong Cab Franc element here. Very herbaceous; silkily textured - nice overall balance and grip. lovely finish. Very well made.

    (Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) There is aromatic complexity here, purity and depth, and it is very expressive of the fruit which is 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot. Rich but well defined, and this continues on the palate which shows overtly more substance and depth than the Petit Cheval, together with a finer balance. The texture is silky, fresh and there is a vigorous style here. Gently composed, integrated, pure and stylish, with a lovely finish and even some length, this is a success in this vintage.
