Description

    Chateau Cheval Blanc 1949
    St. Emilion
    bn, lbsl, excellent color
    Bottle (1)
    "Very deep ruby with medium rim. A lovely right bank nose with lots of minerals. Very slightly acidic. Lots of sweetness. Pure pleasure. This didn't taste half as old as it actually was. Great vitality. Of course I cannot be sure when this wine started to drink well but I imagine it has a longer drinking span than most wines." (18pts JR, May 2008)

    "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." (96 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #103, Feb. 1996)
