    (Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) This has a moderate depth of colour, showing some surprising maturity on inspection, something I noticed when I tasted it previously, back in 2005. Nevertheless it has some ripe fruit on the nose, with maturing fruits infused with notes of green peppercorn and mint, characteristics I associate with appropriately ripe Cabernet Franc. This is divine. On the palate, behind a layer of berry fruit rubbed with vanilla, there is a melding of great character with fine elegance, with great style, although still showing a rather raw structure at present. Delightful, well-bred wine; as last time, it needs integration of structure, and yet has a paradoxically enticingly ready aroma and flavour. Ignoring the appearance, this has great potential to please over the coming years, but I am uncertain as to its longevity.

    (Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) This has a surprisingly mature hue for such a young wine, especially the grand vin, showing a much more advanced colour than the older 1999 and 2000. But it has a beautiful nose, very perfumed, aromatic coffee grounds and gently roasted meats. Lovely style. Fine texture on entry, proceeding to a full yet smoothly integrated midpalate, although there is still a little display of fatness and tannin. But despite the need for further integration, the flavours are quite evolved. Will, on the basis of this bottle if it is representative, will be drinking very shortly. I should perhaps reserve judgement, but....
