Drank blind with my wineclub. Very typical St Emilion nose - colour shows signs of age. ( overage??) Nice fruit, but very low on tannis. Definitely a wine to be enjoyed NOW! The wine looks light brown colored. There is no sediment in the bottle. The body is light/medium. The wine has narrow texture. The wine finishes long. .
This is a jeaune fille, cloaked in red silk, medium to dark. She's conventionally attractive, pretty, nice to look at, but what's most beautiful is her optimism, the bounce and dance in her step. She's classy and elegant, yet vivacious - she's not weary of the world and jaded... at least not yet.
Deep ruby turning to brick. Cedar, pine needles and forest floor bouquet with saddle leather and black fruit. The palate is more rounded than 3 years ago, no dustiness, tannins still present, but not as prevalent, and blackcurrant/cedar bouquet lasts through to the long, pleasurable finish. Drank after 2 hours decanting, this wine has improved over last three years, and is very attractive given the vintage.

(Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) A lively, open, slightly meaty, deep and characterful nose, evolved, with a little nuance of green peppercorn and hints of iron. Rather detached on the palate, a little lean, and certainly gentle through the midpalate. Soft, integrated, aged. Drinking now. Interesting, developed and ready to go. But no better than good really.
