K&L Notes

Cheval Blanc is a Premier Grand Cru Classé A—one of a small number of elite St-Emilion producers at the top of their classification. Holding a pretty impressive 91 acres of land in this small appellation, it is also one of Bordeaux's most profound and collectible wines. Cheval Blanc is often (and understandably) confused with Bordeaux's First Growths, but the 1855 classification did not extend to St-Emilion. The deserved praises of Cheval Blanc have been sung for quite some time, notably by Robert Parker, having a great effect on the popularity of the wine. The vineyards are planted to 66% Cabernet Franc and 34% Merlot. The 2012 cuvee is 46% Cabernet Franc and 54% Merlot. 94 points Robert Parker: "A beautiful wine that always seems to drink well, the 2012 Cheval Blanc has a sweet, fragrant nose of black and red currants, floral nuances and spice. Supple, round and juicy, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 15 or more years."
