1982 Chateau Cheval Blanc Bordeaux Magnum - 99 pts!
Château Cheval Blanc is a property in the Saint-Émilion region of Bordeaux, classified with the top ranking of Premier Grand Cru Classé A. It is regarded by many as the greatest wine of the appellation, and is certainly the most famous Cabernet Franc-based wine in the world. Typically the grand vin is lush and full bodied with great weight of fruit. It tends to require 10 years of bottle age and the best vintages can last half a century or more. The second wine is Le Petit Cheval.

Rating RP100 -
1982 Chateau Cheval Blanc Bordeaux Magnum - 99 pts! Revealing considerable amber in its dark plum/garnet color this intensely fragrant 1982 is somewhat of a paradox in that the front end suggests full maturity but the mid-palate finish and overall texture denote a closed wine. A gorgeously sweet entry displays flavors of caramel roasted coffee jammy red and black fruits coconut and smoke. It is fat and full-bodied with considerable tannin structure and muscle in the finish. Flamboyantly rich and precocious early in life it is going through an awkward stage where the tannin is present but it is also sexy juicy and formidably-structured. When the 1982 Cheval Blanc's component parts become totally in sync it will be capable of meriting a three-digit rating. RP
