1990 Chateau Cheval Blanc Bordeaux - 98 pts!
- OWC 12 btls x 750ml 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! RP
