    June 1, 2019 - Cheval Blanc Vertical ‘Chez Elke’ (Hotel Hohenzollern, Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler): So different from the other Chevals I had, but oh so much fun. An overlooked vintage this delivered.
    More California than Bordeaux, with mint and eucalyptus notes, good richness and length.
    This has a lot of life ahead!

    June 1, 2019 - Very interesting bottle unlike any other Cheval Blanc I had. Notees of currants but also menthol and eucalyptus. Very well balanced. If I did not know otherwise, I would have said this was a Martha's

    February 16, 2019 - 47CB and Friends (3030 Ocean, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida): A stunning bottle of ‘64 Cheval Blanc, but since it was recorked in 1996, it’s impossible to tell how much of its amazingly youthful exuberance might be due to topping up with a younger version. Of course it’s possible it was topped off with more ‘64, but impossible to tell. Once I put my skepticism aside, I enjoyed it immensely for its gorgeous plum and black cherry fruit and fabulous natural sweetness. Super fruity yet the structure is there to support it. Whatever they did in 1996, it worked. Still, I’d like to taste a non-recorked version to compare to it.

    January 20, 2019 - An amazing experience! Cork was somewhat dried but got it all out. Virtually no sediment, but decanted anyhow ~ 30 min before serving. Color lively brick, very little brown edge. Outrageously complex smokey, meaty nose, with hints of coffee and garrigue. One taster swore it was an old northern Rhone. Gained further complexity and spiciness throughout a 2+ hour dinner - NO fading! This continues to outlive and exceed all expectations. A real treat if you ever have the opportunity!!

    July 29, 2018 - Cork was dried out and hard to remove but wine was fine. Still red with tinges of brown. Almost no sediment!

    Initially, wine had a strong fruit nose with some smoky notes, smoke continued on the palate. Decanted, the wine improved for almost 3 hours before fully consumed. Smoky notes disappeared; replaced with raison, leather and hints of plum.

    What a treat!
