Chateau Cheval Blanc 2004 Saint Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classe 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 2004 Château Cheval Blanc Saint-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé, a blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot.
'Extremely round, supple tannins and impressive depths of undeveloped flavour with lovely appetising dry tannins (as opposed to a drying, rasping finish) - truly winemaker Pierre Lurton's "cashmere" tannins. Round, intense mulberry flavours. Quite insistent, ripe tannins on the finish. Relatively gentle and the vintage with the most recognisable Cheval character of recent years. Great balance, savoury and rather playful. Lots of fruit and well-hidden tannins. Good freshness without any excess of acidity. Drink 2014-28 18.5/20' Jancis Robinson MW, 2005
