The colour is a deep crimson. The first nose immediately reveals the wine's complexity. The aromatic expression combines hints of violet and peony which develop towards notes of summer fruit, raspberry and black cherry. This stylish vintage boasts aromatic freshness, precision and clarity. On the palate the attack is rounded and ample. The middle palate is full and fleshy, with an exceedingly long-lasting finish. The tannins are elegant and silky, creating perfect balance on the palate. This wine leaves a highly aromatic impression of fruit and freshness.
95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
"The 2011 Cheval Blanc is one of the more plump, opulent and sexy Cheval Blancs made over recent vintages and its forwardness, lusciousness and complexity seemingly suggest this wine is on a fast evolutionary track. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple/plum colour, a medium to full-bodied opulence, a sumptuous mid-palate and a lush, heady finish. It is a super, complex, evolved Cheval Blanc that can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years. Bravo!".
