2004 Château Cheval-Blanc, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A) St-Emilion

Viticulture consultant Kees van Leeuwen describes this as the greatest Cheval vintage since the stunning 2000. Inky blackcurrant with a purple crimson rim. Intense cassis becomes gradually more fragrant in the glass, but very tight - like buried treasure. Tannins are well-defined yet very smooth, fanning out to fill the mouth, and Cabernet Franc (55%, Merlot45%) lends freshness to the concentration. Fruit and oak perfectly balanced.
