|Conditie||Base of neck|
Fully mature, but capable of lasting another 10-15 years, this flamboyantly scented wine (jammy black fruits, licorice, Asian spices, herbs, grilled meats) is a lusciously rich, opulent, medium to full-bodied, fat and juicy style of Cheval Blanc that seems to get better and better every time I taste it. Like so many Cheval Blancs, it has the uncanny ability to put on weight in the bottle.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
Beginning to show maturity. Spice and cedar aromas give way to a silky texture and flavors of tobacco and roasted fruits.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
