Château Cheval Blanc 2005 Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2005

Tasting notes: As might be expected, Cheval Blanc outperforms, exhibiting a heady nose of lush black fruit and spice followed by complex notes of cocoa, vanilla and berry on the palate. It finishes as seamlessly as it begins. Worth knowing: Château Cheval Blanc was owned by the Fourcaud-Laussac family for 166 years. They sold the property in 1998 to Bernard Arnault, the billionaire head of LVMH, and Albert Frère, the wealthiest man in Belgium.
