Château Cheval-Blanc 2000
Saint-Émilion, 1er grand cru classé (A)
Offered in a six-bottle original wooden case and a carton
Tasting note: Mouthfillingly full, fruity and fleshy in cask. Most recently: fairly deep, plummy rim; brambly fruit, whiff of vanilla and spice; perfect balance and constitution, touch of coffee (oak) and dry finish. Lovely future. Last tasted Jan 2006 **(***) 2008 – 2020. MB.
