I was surprised by how soft, opulent, even voluptuous the 2001 Cheval Blanc performed out of bottle as this estate’s wines tend to shut down when young. Its deep ruby/purple color was accompanied by sweet aromas of cranberries, black currants, menthol, Asian spices, and underbrush. This seductive blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc reveals a lush sweetness, medium body, and ripe, well-integrated tannin. A racy effort filled with personality, it should be at its finest between 2007-2018. - WA, RP (6/2004)
Bright medium ruby. Subtly perfumed, pure aromas of boysenberry, black cherry and violet. Silky and moderately dense but tightly wound, with lovely precision and urgency of dark berry, bitter chocolate and violet flavor. Very long, youthfully vibrant finish features firm tannins and superb cut. ST
