The color of this Petit Cheval Blanc, crystalline with yellow-green highlights, characterizes the young age of this wine. From the first nose, minerality dominates with its notes of flint, match tip, hit pebble. After aeration, the wine expresses its complexity with fresh citrus notes such as lemon or bergamot. The fresh bush characters like sage or rosemary mingle with notes of fresh flowers such as acacia, lilac or vine flower. The frank and direct attack shows all the nervousness of this wine. The mid- palate is large and crisp. Volume and sweetness balance perfectly with fresh and straight acidity. The aromatic return expresses the complexity of this wine with a fruity white flesh (peach, pear). Its long and rich finish stretches with lovely bitters.

This is an opulent, dense wine, very perfumed while also structured. It is complex, full of rich fruit that pours through the wood and dark tannin. It just hints at a more exuberant future, flavored with the ripest fruits while still keeping freshness. Drink from 2020

The 2011 Cheval Blanc is one of the more plump, opulent and sexy Cheval Blancs made over recent vintages, and its forwardness, lusciousness and complexity seemingly suggest this wine is on a fast evolutionary track. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple/plum color, a medium to full-bodied opulence, a sumptuous mid-palate (atypical for the vintage), and a lush, heady finish. It is a super, complex, evolved Cheval Blanc that can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years. Bravo!.

This shows a juicy edge, with a very focused mix of white peach, ginger, fennel and mandarin notes racing through. Chiseled finish. Drink now through 2026.
