Château Cheval Blanc

Description

2000 Château Cheval Blanc 1er Grand Cru Classé A,    
St-Emilion AOC, Château Cheval Blanc     

A well evolved, elegant example of Cheval Blanc. Surprisingly forward, sweet, complex fruit and a long, velvety finish. This wine will continue to gain in weight and complexity over the ensuing decade.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
This closed, backward blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc boasts a saturated purple color along with a reticent but striking bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, truffles, and mocha. In spite of its tightness, aeration reveals scents of licorice, menthol, and saddle leather. Opulent and full-bodied, with low acidity, sweet tannin, and a 60-second finish, it is unquestionably as profound as the 1990 and 1982. I still believe the 2000 has the potential to be the most compelling Cheval Blanc since the mythical 1947 and 1949, but patience is required. It should merit a three digit score in 7-10 years, but it is closed at present. Anticipated maturity
