1990 Chateau Cheval Blanc Bordeaux - 98 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 RP98 - In contrast to the 1989 the 1990 is increasingly sumptuous with each additional tasting. The wine possesses all the hallmarks of a hot ripe year - low acidity super-ripe nearly over-ripe fruit an opulent oily texture great sweetness of fruit and a long voluptuously-textured finish. In the most recent tasting I almost mistook it for Le Pin given its showboat-like nose of coconut toasty new oak and gobs of smoky blackcurranty and cherry fruit. The wine is full-bodied rich and concentrated with layers of extract and well-concealed tannin. I am increasingly convinced that this is the most profound Cheval Blanc since the legendary 1982. Because of its fleshy low-acid character the wine can be drunk but it is still youthful with a deeper purple color than the more mature-looking 1989. It should offer exotic opulence for at least another 15-20 years. A compelling Cheval Blanc!
