Ch. Cheval Blanc (0.75 L)
NM: The Cabernet Franc dominates the nose on the í»93 Cheval: cedar, sandalwood, cooked meats, smoke with just a hint of wild mint. The palate is well balanced, again, the Cabernet Franc í over-seasoningí€ this masculine Cheval Blanc, leading to a leafy, savoury finish that would benefit from a little more depth. This is a very agreeable Cheval but it is maturing quicker than I expected. Drink now-2013. Tasted July 2009.
