CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC 1975
Château Cheval Blanc 1975
St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)
u. 4vts, 8ts, wines come from different importers, bin-soiled and glue-striped labels, 3 badly wine-stained labels and bottles, 3 torn labels, corroded capsules, 1 slightly raised cork, 1 label with pen-marked on corner

A low yield of 21 hl/hectare. 13% alcohol. Just so intensely spicy and concentrated. Great freshness. That coriander finish one sometimes finds in a Cheval. From Jeroboam, it can be very chocolatey and truffley. It is a highly individual, very special wine that I love and it is certainly at the very top of the 1975s. In 2011, a wonderful, ferny, classy, elegant nose. Magic persistence. Some aniseed. Great sweetness on the palate. So tempting. The most delicious 1975 anywhere now. Perfect balance. Elegance and refinement, sweetness and such finesse of texture. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
