Tasting Notes Le Petit Cheval 2008

90

I am surprised by the quality of the second wine this year, considering the difficulty of the vintage. Pierre Lurton, president of Cheval Blanc, said that they have really tried to improve the quality of the second wine, and it shows. There is lots of blueberry and chocolate character

The 2008 Le Petit Cheval (65% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot) is a light, but not a wimpy wine. It is more cedary and evolved, with spice box, tobacco leaf, licorice, and red and black fruits in a medium-bodied, classic style that should drink nicely for 10-12 years.

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. This is broody and animally on the nose, touches of undergrowth and dark brambly fruit. Tarry notes developing. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins, a touch of piquancy but there seems to be some heavy-handed oak on the finish. Perhaps this will improve with further bottle age? Tasted January 2012.
