An intense, deep colour, black inthe middle with purple glints on the rim. A powerful nose. Rich with luxuriant fruit and hints of eucalyptus and bay leaves. The palate develops beautifully with finesse and complexity and very coated tannins that are in no way aggressive. Probably the greatest Cheval Blanc of the second half of the 20th century. To lay down a long time.

Wine SpectatorSubtle, complex and refined, with aromas of cherry, licorice, mineral, berry and other sweet, ripe fruit. Full-bodied and compacted, with masses of fine, silky tannins. Long, long finish. Best after 2010. 8,330 cases made

Wine Advocate"This blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as classic aromas of menthol, plums, mulberries, and assorted black fruits. The oak, texture, acidity, and tannin are all beautifully integrated. While full-bodied, elegant, concentrated, and impeccably balanced, it requires several years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020."
