Château Cheval-Blanc 1989
Saint-Émilion, 1er grand cru classé (A)
Offered in an original wooden case
One slightly damaged capsule. Pristine labels. Levels into neck
Tasting note: The earliest harvest since the early 20th century and a big crop. Fairly quick and even development, a wine of distinctive charm and elegance. . Two recent notes. Still very deep yet with mature rim; bouquet curiously reluctant at first, complex, smoky, bricky, a whiff of mint and liquorice; sweet, full fruit, lovely flavour – liquorice noted again, silky tannins. Needs time. Last tasted Jan 2006 ****(*) 2008 – 2020. MB.
