Tasting Notes Cheval Blanc 1996

90

The elegant, moderately weighted 1996 Cheval Blanc reveals a deep garnet/plum, evolved color. Quintessentially elegant, with a complex nose of black fruits, coconut, smoke, and pain grille, this medium-bodied wine exhibits sweet fruit on the attack, substantial complexity, and a lush, velvety-textured finish. It is very soft and evolved for a 1996. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015.

A very disappointing wine after the gorgeous Cheval Blanc 1995. The nose is reticent, unresolved with woody, smoky scents. Similarly the palate is rather disjointed with some under-ripeness on the mid-palate. Linear with a thin weedy finish. Very ordinary. Shown up for what it is at this horizontal comparative tasting. Tasted September 2005.
