2005 Ch. Cheval Blanc, St Emilion

Ch. Cheval Blanc, St Emilion
Director Pierre Lurton has produced an extraordinary Cheval Blanc in 2005 with wonderful purity and class, emphasizing beauty over power. Like so many of the great 2005s this starts slowly and then snowballs into an avalanche of flavour, getting more and more complex and intense as it goes. With its floral, bitter chocolate and ripe black fruit nose this is immediately very different to other wines we have tasted. Crushed coffee beans enhance the sensational blackberry fruit amidst a palate of great poise, harmony and luxurious polish.Château Cheval Blanc

Ch. Cheval Blanc, St Emilion
The 2005 from Cheval Blanc is a quintessentially elegant, beautiful, deep bluish/ruby-colored wine from St.-Emilion, with raspberry, blueberry, and floral notes, impressive density, great precision, freshness and purity. Full-bodied, but extremely light on its feet, I don’t mean to gush, but it is super-intense, rich and just so meticulously crafted! This is another fabulous wine and a perfect expression for this vintage. It is difficult to forget the gorgeous blueberry and raspberry fruit, full body, sweet tannin, a multi-layered texture, and purity and palate presence of this stunning wine. Drink it over the next 20 years. P.S. In 2005, this was 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot.
