    (Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) A fascinating nose to this wine, which is now approaching the end of its second decade. Initially it showed some gamey and slightly mushroomy aromas, but then it opened out to reveal more complexity, with aromas of mint, salty rock and iron. It is certainly enticing! The palate is fresh, a touch fleshy with a nice texture to it, and although maturing nicely it is still in possession of some tannin and extract. This is a wine of fine substance, meaty and yet also stylish. A fabulous bottle.

    (Château Cheval Blanc) Medium garnet red color with pale meniscus; sexy tart plum and leather nose; solid, cassis, tart red fruit palate with tobacco and a touch of herbaceousness; medium finish

    (Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) A good depth, with a quite mature hue. Rather green style here, with green pepper and green peppercorn, surprising characteristics from this vintage. Lots of mature, macerated fruit alongside. Full, slightly fleshy, more green peppercorn spice, with lovely structure. Ripe and silky tannins, and a delightful, soft, creamy, mature mouthfeel. This is very good wine indeed, and I think will improve with further time in the cellar.
