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 93 RP - The complex, explosively fragrant 1999 Cheval Blanc is a blend of 59% Merlot and 41% Cabernet Franc. It is already showing well, which is a good sign for a wine that traditionally is reserved early in life, but puts on weight and richness in the bottle. Stylistically, this wine is probably cut from the same mold as vintages such as 1985, 1966, and 1962. The color is a dense ruby with purple nuances. Once past the blockbuster bouquet of menthol, leather, black fruits, licorice, and mocha, the wine reveals medium body, extraordinary elegance, purity, and sweet, harmonious flavors with no hard edges. This is a seamless beauty of finesse, charm, and concentration. The 1999 is an exciting Cheval Blanc to drink relatively young. RP
