'96 Cheval Blanc.....decanted for 30 minutes or so and drank over the next 5 hours. Medium dark in the glass. Intially, huge nose of tire and fruit but a bit tight/closed. By the end of the bottle we were getting, tire nose, leather and rasberry that was soft, absolutely delicious and at least a 45 second finish, if not longer. A rather complex bordeaux that literally covered the whole palate. This is an absolutely beautiful elegant boreaux and worthy of a higher score than Parker gave it. A truly memorable experience.
