    Chateau Cheval Blanc 1949
    St. Emilion
    1vhs, 1ms, 2ltsl, 1lcc, great color
    Bottle (2)
    "It is one of the great Cheval Blancs - not as port-like and syrupy as the 1947, but more classically rendered. But do not take that to mean this is a wimpish wine. It is an unbelievably rich, sweet, expansive, full-bodied style of Cheval Blanc with enormous quantities of glycerin, fruit, alcohol, and extract. Although it has been drinkable for decades, it continues to offer that exotic, Asian spice, cedar, and huge, sweet fruit-scented nose." (96pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #103 Feb 1996)
