    July 13, 2019 - Not corked but out of condition. Too thin, too sour.

  • ShadowIII Likes this wine: 92 points

    June 26, 2019 - Still with good fruit, currants, cassis, much more still going than the '69 consumed beside it, cedar, hints of caramel, nice finish

    June 1, 2019 - Cheval Blanc Vertical ‘Chez Elke’ (Hotel Hohenzollern, Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler): Slender and light, pear notes, long but too light finish

    June 1, 2019 - Very overpowering smell of geraniums that did not allow anything else to come through. Unfortunately thus quite one dimensional and not too pleasant to my personal palate.

    February 16, 2019 - 47CB and Friends (3030 Ocean, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida): I like this vintage of Cheval Blanc for its filigree tannins and its remarkable complexity. It’s balanced on the head of a pin, as if just a touch more acidity or tannin would cause it to fall off the cliff. There’s some modestly ripe fruit in there for sure. Catch it now before it expires.
