Varietal: Bordeaux Blend Appellation: St. Emilion Region: Bordeaux Country: France
Cheval Blanc 2005 sells for over $900/btl but its second wine "Le Petit Cheval" is a steal at $169 and drinking to perfection now. Possessing similar characteristics as its bigger sibling this wine has wonderful aromas of chocolate, spice and toasted oak. Full-bodied, with really fine tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A gorgeous wine for all Bordeaux lovers!
Readers should take note of the estate's second wine, the delicious, up front, Cheval-like le petit Cheval. The 2005 may be the finest example of this cuvee produced. Wine Advocate 90-92
