Château Cheval Blanc 1988 is part of the magnificent trilogy of fine vintages 1988, 1989 and 1990. The greatness of the vintage is confirmed through this complex and well-structured wine. Balanced and elegant, the palate is harmonious with notes of mint, mocha, caramel and Russian leather. This wine with significant aging potential will seduce lovers of great wines.

Tom Cannavan (01-2000) Moderately dense ruby lightening at rim but not browning. Gloriously sweet nose with masses of cedary wood and pencil-shavings. The fruit is extremely rich on the nose with little violet scents and red berries. Lovely ripeness. The palate is quite rich and spicy, but the fruit is very sweet, even a touch jammy. There's a mass of leafy tobacco flavour that shows towards the finish and some lean, sinewy tannins take hold. Good concentration and a lovely though not profound wine.

(03-1999) Still fresh and fruity, this offers floral aromas and harmonious, balanced flavors of cherry, berry and mint. It's drinking well now, but will hold.
