Château Cheval Blanc Saint Emilion 2001
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Château Cheval Blanc|
Powerful, without aggressiveness, spherical, silky, always with elegance and breed, a core of Cabernet Franc enveloped with Merlot, the wine of Cheval Blanc approaches the style of a Pomerol without quite resembling a Saint Emilion. With its freshness and cashmere-soft tannins, it ages marvellously, expressing the effect of its terroir, which makes it more and more complex and subtle.
Dark and intense, with blackberry, plum and light vanilla aromas. Subtle and complex. Full-bodied, with plenty of berry and vanilla character and a long, silky finish. Very racy. Very refined and long. Love the caressing texture. Close to the 2000 in quality. Best after 2008.
