Robert Parker's Wine Advocate : The 2017 Cheval Blanc is composed of [...] an unusually high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens slowly to reveal a gorgeous lilacs, roses, licorice and black truffles nose over a compelling core of cassis, warm plums, wild blueberries and cigar box plus a waft of wood smoke.
Medium to full-bodied, firm and earthy in character on the palate, it packs in tightly wound fruits and mineral accents, culminating in a long, perfumed finish. 50,000 bottles are to be produced.
Blend : 59% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Franc and 19% Cabernet Sauvignon.
