LE PETIT CHEVAL ST EMILION
This is the second wine of Château Cheval Blanc, mainly made from Merlot but with some of the estate's signature Cabernet Franc in the blend. It is richly structured, but with a velvetiness that conveys an opulent character.
It has a light, airy bouquet with dark berry fruit. There is just a touch of leafiness but it is fresh and well defined. The Taste is a little chunky on the entry with grippy tannins. It is a little rustic and disjointed at the moment, although it should meld together with time. Leaving glass for a few minutes it offers some attractive herbaceous/tertiary flavours towards the Finish.
