Community Tasting Notes 5

    May 29, 2017 - Aromas to herbal, tobacco leaf, insence and black cherry. Medium bodied and very true to Estate flavors with less concentration due to vintage. Just beginning to drink well. We had a Magnum. If you are more Pinot inclined, you,ll love this! Very charming and will improve next 3 to 5 years.

    May 4, 2017 - Perfectly mature, the wine shows tobacco, flowers, red fruits and cigar box notes. In the mouth, you find a medium bodied wine with olives and herbs on top of the red fruits. This requires drinking today or in the near future.

    June 30, 2016 - Definitely looking older, a lighter garnet color. But drinking surprisingly well. Notes of cherry and plenty of cigar box and oak notes. Light, but enjoyable. Followed up with a 2000 Arietta H Block (also a Merlot-CF blend); the Arietta was much the more luscious wine but I enjoyed the Cheval.

    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

    (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.
