This thoroughbred of St Emilion, Ch Cheval Blanc, was released this morning at £3,200 per 6 In Bond. Cheval Blanc has made two excellent wines this year, as 2016 saw the return of their second wine, Le Petit Cheval. The Grand Vin blew us away when we tasted it in the newly renovated tasting room. The Cabernet Franc component provides a wonderful line of distinction and the Merlot adds a delicious degree of sweetness and volume. The tightly knit tannins provide greater depth and persistence on the finish.
