2009 was a warm, dry year, but not to excess. Wonderfully ripe grapes account for this very great vintage of Château Cheval Blanc which is tremendously smooth with impressive concentration and exuberant richness. This wine leaves a strong impression and will continue to do so for many years?
THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 100 points - Drink Date: 2020 - 2057 - "Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Cheval Blanc offers up profound notions of baked blueberries, blackberry compote and crème de cassis with suggestions of chocolate mint, new leather and cloves plus a waft of candied violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is an exercise in elegance with very classy, super fine-grained tannins, beautiful freshness and layer upon layer of mineral-laced blue and black fruits, finishing long and perfumed." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (Mar 2019)
