CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC 1990
Château Cheval Blanc 1990
St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)
Levels bn or into the neck, wines come from different importers, heavily cellar soiled, heavily faded and torn labels

Vintage from 11 September to 25 September - only the 1945 and the 1989 were picked earlier during this century. Strict thinning out in this prolific vintage produced 38 hl/hectare. 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc. 13.5% alcohol. The overripe Merlot this year was balanced by Cabernet Franc freshness. The dream comparison with 1989. In 2011 from double magnum, a nose of figs. Toast and caramel. An amazing array of scents. Fabulous, sweet, spicy cinnamon on the palate. Pure silk. Tremendously seductive with sweet leather at the end. In 2013, just incredible - one of the greatest Cheval Blancs. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
