CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC 1982
Château Cheval Blanc 1982
St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)
Lot 554: Levels bn or into the neck, bin-soiled and damp-stained labels, Damp-stained case, Lot 555: u. 7bn 4vts, 1 level into the neck, 11 heavily cellar-soiled and faded labels, 6 partially adhered, torn, and partially missing labels, 1 missing label, cut capsule reveals fully branded cork confirming vintage, 2 corroded capsules, excellent color and clarity

In 2019, one is just so amazed that it is so youthful - a huge, all-enveloping, black fruit mouthful. To think that 54hl/hectare were made, that magic combination of quality and quantity. And only 12.8% alcohol. Super-class, concentrated richness and a hint of 'iron in its soul'. Velvet in the mouth, with an astonishing blackberry finish that I have not seen before.
