The 1997 vintage of Château Cheval Blanc is very satisfying. With a blend of 83% Merlot and only 17% Cabernet Franc, this wine offers, on tasting, aromas of toast and ripe red fruits with a little exoticism with scents of coconut. A generally difficult vintage in the region but a success on the Côte du Château Cheval Blanc with its elegance.

Intensity, stylish, good length. Sweet, delicious. A delight to drink by itself.

Lovely aromas of ripe fruit, coffee and toasted oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with a good backbone of tannin and a medium finish. A bit austere. Too much wood? Give this a little time.

A seductive, fragrant style of Cheval Blanc, with moderate density and weight, this immediately appealing 1997 exhibits an exotic nose of coconut, plums, cherry liqueur, and sweet, toasty oak. The wine's alluring personality is accompanied by fine suppleness, low acidity, medium body, and current drinkability.-
