Château Cheval Blanc 2000
St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)
Slightly soiled label
Vintage from 14 September to 28 September. A generous 42 hl/hectare made. They recorded 14.9% in the Merlot from clay this year. 50% Cabernet Franc, 50% Merlot. In 2011, a warm, spicy leather nose. Great red fruit liveliness. Just a stunning charmer. In magnum, so fruity and youthful, with superb energy. Great, luscious plums and such beautiful definition. In 2015, so exuberant and almost a Pomerol! Very plummy, fresh, rosy and silky-textured. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
