    March 3, 2020 - LEGENDARY CHEVAL BLANC 47

    I finally popped this bottle to share with my good friend as I lost a bet to him last year. Cork came out pristine, bottle condition was perfect! After 68 years old, I have least expectations. But it turned out to be my WINE OF THE YEAR 2015. Totally mind blowing, fragrance occupied the table. The body was so alive, fresh and elegant. It tasted like a Cheval 70, still way too young! Drank it over 3 hours, no sign of fading. The Armand Rousseau Clos de Beze 99 next to it pales.”

    June 1, 2019 - Cheval Blanc Vertical ‘Chez Elke’ (Hotel Hohenzollern, Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler): Negociant bottle. Started out slow but then gained a lot with air and kept gaining. Herbs, camomile, sweet tea, incredibly long and multi faceted wine.

    June 1, 2019 - Gorgeous bottle; initially a very woody smell that dissipated and made room to beautiful beautiful aromas of camomille and vanilla. A pleasure on the palate, definitely a rockstar - what a pleasure

    March 26, 2019 - An Evening of Vinous Merriment and Majesty Among Friends (Craft, New York): This is incredibly precise and delineated. The fruit is amazingly alive and fresh. Great acidity with a flinty smokey nose. Phenomenal complexity. Stunning!

    February 28, 2019 - Base neck fill. Bottle was purchased off a bordeaux negociant from his home cellar 18 years ago. The wine was port like with raisins, tobacco, earth and plum fruit with lifted and sharp acidity. Very rich, deep, powerful and long especially for its age. Crazily youthful wine which kept improving in the glass. To be completely frank, it was not the type of aged bordeaux I love the most because of that port-like character. I wish I had more in the glass to follow for another 1-2 hours as the complexity of this wine was indeed exceptional. I will certainly try this again from another source to see the difference. The sensation I had was quite similar to other TNs I saw here. One thing for certain is how incredibly rich and powerful the wine was for its age. 45 Mouton is the next bottle on my bucket list. No score for this wine tonight.
