This wine has closed down somewhat since I had it from barrel and exhibits a firm, earthy, mineral-laced style. Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the ripe black raspberry and blueberry fruit are present, along with some sandy, loamy soil notes. The tannins are sweet, but very elevated, and the wine rich and long but currently somewhat austere and needing bottle age. Give it 2 or 3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15+ years. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Soft and silky, with round and fine tannins. Medium- to full-bodied, with lovely texture and fresh acidity. Long and inviting

This wine from the Cheval Blanc team gets better every year. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. Very dark crimson. Definitively juicy nose. Very racy and polished. Nice savoury note. A little bit of modern glamour. Chewy end. Altogether pretty confident. Beefy. Bravo! 13.7%

Round, smooth and very elegant. Pretty red-berry fruit. The Cheval Blanc team seem to have hit the right note. Drink 2014-2024
