    Description

    Chateau Cheval Blanc 1961
    St. Emilion
    hs, bsl, ltc
    Bottle (1)


    "Showing considerable amber to the garnet color, this wine shows an exotic nose of licorice, sweet, jammy red and black fruits, spice box, and cedar. In the mouth, the wine is medium-bodied, lush, and fleshy, with plenty of glycerin and a very soft, tactile impression." (91 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 4th Ed., Jan. 2003)

    "I have consistently mistaken this wine for a great Graves in tastings where it has appeared. Opaque dark ruby/garnet with a rust-colored edge, this wine has a big, full-blown bouquet of burnt tobacco, and earthy, gravelly scents. On the palate, it is sweet, ripe, full bodied, extremely soft and supple, and clearly at its apogee. I have noticed above-normal bottle variation with the 1961 Cheval Blanc, but the best bottles of this wine are marvelously rich and lush." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan. 1998)
