Tasting Notes Cheval Blanc 2006

95

The brilliant 2006 Cheval Blanc performed better from bottle than from barrel. A blend of equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot grown in a superb vineyard site facing La Conseillante and l’Evangile at the very edge of the sandy, gravelly soils of St.-Emilion, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of menthol, charcoal, boysenberries, black currants, and hints of cocoa and caramel. Lush, textured, and opulent with superb purity, medium to full body, savory flavors, and sweet, sexy tannins, this stunning Cheval Blanc may be even better than the 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030.

Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Cheval is a blend of 54% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. This has a very subtle nose, fine definition, soft red-berried fruit, fruitcake and a touch of truffle/damp earth although at the moment it remains a little introverted. The palate has sharp acidity on the entry, a bit of piquancy here, earthy black fruits, allspice, a touch of cloves, rather sharp and pointed at first but mellowing with time in the glass. Quite linear and to be honest, trumped by other Right Bank superstars, but still a lovely Cheval, if not one firing on all cylinders. Tasted January 2010.
