"Extremely precise floral and berry aromatics build out of the glass..."

98 Points - Jane Anson

We're delighted to start the week with the release of one of the finest wines in all of Bordeaux, the Premier Grand Cru Classe “A”, Chateau Cheval Blanc. "The Chateau has released 30% less onto the market, at a 30% reduction in price against the 2018, therefor the wine is sure to sell out fast, therefore this wine is sure to sell out fast.

Precision is always at the heart of Cheval Blanc with meticulous attention to detail when it comes to viticulture, picking and pressing. In a vintage with both fantastic ripeness and finesse, 2019 is no doubt a success for the revered Saint-Emilion estate.

Aromatically a little more reserved than the 2018 at this stage. But ripe, intense and flickeringly floral. Beautifully poised on the palate with a density of fruit and silky texture of finely matted tannins. Pure, seductive and persistent, the finish long and digeste. A super Cheval Blanc but 2018 may just have the edge. (JL)

"Extremely precise floral and berry aromatics build out of the glass and this sense of construction continues through the palate. On the attack you get a whoosh of powerful blueberry and blackberry, with sage, woodsmoke and crushed stone, all cut cleanly through, exposing juicy minerality and a feel of different elements layering on top of each other. 82% 1st wine in this vintage. Harvest from September 10, picking only in the mornings for two weeks (the only three plots of Merlot that were brought in after the September rains are in Petit Cheval). Biodiversity is blooming at Cheval right now - 40 brebis goats and sheep since October 2019, alongside pigs, 200 Bresse chicken, 40 egg-laying chickens and 16 beehives. They have planted 850 fruit trees this winter among the vines, and no longer work the soils. Less Cabernet Franc in the vineyard until 2022 due to replanting."
