WOW! This wine was such a find I wanted to try something new so I ask a friend
what she thought I should try she suggested the Cheval Blanc Bordeaux blend 97
I was bit hesitant. But I gave in and I am so glad This wine is very cool and
smooth. It has confidence about it that makes you like it from the start. the
aromas only complement that confidence with sweet oak , plum, cherry liquor and
coconut. It has a medium body and richness to it and a texture that is smooth
and pleasing to the pallett.
I bought this wine for my wife a gift. We had an opportunity
to enjoy it one night when we sent the kids to grammas for the night.
We had some cheese and a nice meal. We had a really nice conversation and a
great night. Did you notice I didn't mention the wine much. Well that's because
my mom told me." If you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at
This wine was given to me as a gift from my dad shortly
before he died. I promised myself I would not open it until a very special
day. Well that day came my only daughter's wedding. This wine was so nice it
had an oak scent to it and a full body.
It was nice to share this wine with my wife and my daughter. As we drank the
last glass it was as if I was saying good by to my dad and the past and hello
to a new feature and this wine was good for celebrating both occasions.
I went out to dinner the other night
by myself. I know what a sad day, But it happens. I ordered this wine because
the year 1994 is the same year my son was born. I don't know allot about these
wines, but this one left me with a satisfied and complete feeling. When I was
done with my glass, I had the feeling that I had just finished a glass of art. Sounds
odd I know but this wine was so nice on my palette. I really enjoyed this
Bordeaux and well order it again next time I go to eat at that restaurant.
Hopefully this time not alone.
A very good wine. Very pricy but worth it. This Bordeaux has
beautiful red and purple color to it. I got a hint of coffee and black fruits
in the aroma. the taste was very strong with BIG body and a sweet black fruit
flavor. If you can afford the price go for it.
