Tasting Notes Cheval Blanc 2009

99

It will be fascinating to follow the evolution of the 2009 Cheval Blanc versus the 2010 as well as the awesome 2005, 2000, 1998 and 1990. This famous estate’s vineyard is situated at the juncture of Pomerol and the sandy, gravelly soils of St.-Emilion, facing the two noble estates of l’Evangile and La Conseillante. A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the 2009 Cheval Blanc tips the scales at just under 14% natural alcohol. Its dense blue/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary nose of incense, raspberries, cassis, sweet forest floor and a subtle hint of menthol. Opulent and full-bodied with low acidity but no sense of heaviness, this dense, unctuously textured, super-smooth, velvety, pure, profound Cheval Blanc is impossible to resist despite its youthfulness. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050+.

This is ethereal. The nose is so perfumed and beautiful, with dried flowers, fresh mint, blueberries and plums that follow through to a full body and incredible power of super fine tannins. It's almost like a Romanee-Conti in texture and length. The fresh acidity makes it bright. It's all about texture. 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. Try in 2022.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. What a sophisticated Saint Emilion this is. There is a lot of finesse on the nose with pure Morello cherry, redcurrants and fresh strawberries, all with stunning delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. There is real backbone to this wine, yet it maintains wonderful finesse and poise. The finish is clinically focused with a very long finish. This is a beautifully crafted Cheval Blanc that will reward years of cellaring. Tasted January 2013.
