Chateau Cheval Blanc, 1993

St Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classe

Description and Reviews:
91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Good full ruby-red. Knockout, complex nose offers vibrant aromas of raspberry, sour red cherry, strawberry, licorice and violet, complicated by white pepper and rose. Then moderately dense and fresh in the mouth, with delicately spicy notes of redcurrant, strawberry, licorice, coffee and minerals. This rather elegantly styled wine finishes bright and fresh, with firm, highly polished tannins. This midweight Cheval Blanc lacks the density and concentration of the better vintages, but it has an amazingly pure nose of Cabernet Franc (I'd score this 95 or more for its aromas) that is a joy to inhale. For those with deep pockets, it's also a fantastic food wine, and a simply amazing buy, since it will cost much less than many other more sought-after Cheval Blanc vintages. (10/2011)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Dark ruby with a purple hue, this appealing style of Cheval Blanc offers the tell-tale nose of sweet black fruits, coconut, vanilla, and a touch of menthol. The wine is medium-bodied, elegant, purely made, and while it lacks volume and richness in the mouth, it is soft, delicious, and typical of this property's wines. (2/1997)
