2000 Chateau Cheval Blanc Bordeaux - 100 pts!
This closed backward blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc boasts a saturated purple color along with a reticent but striking bouquet of blackberries blueberries truffles and mocha. In spite of its tightness aeration reveals scents of licorice menthol and saddle leather. Opulent and full-bodied with low acidity sweet tannin and a 60-second finish it is unquestionably as profound as the 1990 and 1982. I still believe the 2000 has the potential to be the most compelling Cheval Blanc since the mythical 1947 and 1949 but patience is required. It should merit a three digit score in 7-10 years but it is closed at present. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030+. Note: The score for this wine was 98 in The Wine Advocate but it is changed to 100 per Mr. Parker as of August 2006. RP
