Chateau Cheval Blanc, Saint-Emilion 1989
|Availability:||Out of stock|
This is a concentrated, complex vintage at Cheval Blanc, with remarkable freshness. The colour is beautiful and deep, with a just a touch of brown on the rim. The nose takes time to open up. Both complex and concentrated, it expresses blackcurrant and prune compote aromas. The bouquet goes on to display slightly spicy, peppery overtones, as well as suggestions of forest floor, leather, and herbes de Provence. 1989 Cheval Blanc is round and fresh on the palate. Well-structured, it has good body and ethereal tannin, as well as opulent, elegant flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant, macerated cherries, and a soupçon of musk. The remarkably long and complex aftertaste has smoky and Russian leather notes.
