CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC 1989
Château Cheval Blanc 1989
St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)
Lot 224: u. 11bn or into the neck, 1 vts, excellent appearance, color and clarity, Lot 225: u. 5bn, 7vts, 2 slightly corroded capsules, 2 nicked capsules, otherwise excellent appearance, color and clarity, Lot 226: u. 9bn, 3 vts, slightly scuffed capsules, 1 slightly wrinkled capsule, excellent color and clarity

The earliest vintage of the century at Cheval Blanc and there were days when the temperature went over 40 degrees Celsius. Close to 50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Franc, which is unusual here. A very generous 47 hl/hectare made. In 2018 and from magnum, this is stunning, with its pure Russian leather bouquet, plus mineral and cocoa notes. So fruity on the palate, with great élan and éclat. Volume, beauty and power, becoming even more sensational in the glass as the dinner progressed. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
