Château Cheval Blanc 1975
St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)
u. 3bn, 4vts, excellent appearance
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

A great collection, mostly of Bordeaux, with all the First Growths and Pétrus, together with a tempting array at all price points, finishing with ready to drink burgundy from Leflaive, Jadot and others. From the high quality underground climate controlled cellar of a stunning continental estate. A few cases were found to be affected by woodworm. As a precaution, all wooden cases have been heat treated
