Description

Château Cheval Blanc 2000  

St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A) 

u. bn


Harvest from 14 September to 28 September and a generous 42hl/hectare produced. They recorded 14.9% in the Merlot from clay this year. 50% Cabernet Franc, 50% Merlot. In 2021, this has great freshness and charm on the nose, surprisingly young - although this is a feature of the best 2000s. On the palate, plummy fruitiness and finesse of texture make it so drinkable now, while waiting for the cherries and leather to develop further. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
