1999 Château Cheval Blanc
First Grand Cru Classé A
St Emilion, Bordeaux
Robert Parker comments :
“The complex, explosively fragrant 1999 Cheval Blanc is a blend of 59% Merlot and 41% Cabernet Franc. Color is a dense ruby with purple nuances. Once past the blockbuster bouquet of menthol, leather, black fruits, licorice, and mocha, the wine reveals medium body, extraordinary elegance, purity, and sweet, harmonious flavors with no hard edges.”
MORE INFORMATIONS ABOUT 1999 CHÂTEAU CHEVAL BLANC :
Winegrowers have succeeded at Cheval Blanc for more than 6 centuries.
It is thanks to them that the estate has evolved, expanded and passed through the years to become a First Grand Cru Classé.
This final distinction is not an achievement for the current owners LVMH and Albert Frère.
This is the continuation of the preservation of a French jewel.
The Château Cheval Blanc 1999 has a deep dress and a black heart hemmed with tile hues.
Its nose is concentrated, on very ripe black fruit and blackcurrant cream, with notes of orange chocolate, violet and liquorice.
The woody is harmonious with notes of toasted almonds.
The aromas are clear and precise: truffle, undergrowth and fruits with brandy.
It offers a great length, without having the density of very large vintages.
Please, enjoy it now.
