Château Cheval Blanc 2003

St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)

Good levels, excellent appearance, tissue wrapped

Vintage from 1 September to 15 September which, for Cheval Blanc, was the earliest since 1893. 33 hl/hectare made. 13.2% alcohol, which is discreet for the year. 56% Cabernet Franc, 44% Merlot. Last tasted at a great Imperial dinner in Hong Kong in 2011. An incredibly spicy bouquet comes out of the glass to greet you. Liquid liquorice and leather. Rich and opulent, generous and welcoming. All glossy glycerol. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
