Tasting Notes Cheval Blanc 1986

89

Tasted at Cheval Blanc dinner at The Ledbury. The nose on the 1986 seems to have unravelled a little in recent years with soft red-berried fruit, tobacco, a touch of blueberry and a hint of soy. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, dry tannins, quite masculine and rather dry towards the finish but it pulls its socks up in the glass, gaining more cohesion and depth. This is a competent Cheval Blanc but one bereft of joie-de-vivre. Drink now. Tasted November 2010.

Another wine that seems to have some youthful characteristics, a high level of tannin and a lack of succulence and substance may ultimately prove to produce a wine somewhat out of balance. The wine shows plum, fig, cherry, earthy, mineral notes and medium body, but the elevated tannins in the finish are distracting. Nevertheless, the wine has a youthfulness and vigor that make it far less evolved than its more seductive older siblings, the 1983 and 1985. Last tasted, 12/02.
