The 1982 vintage is extraordinary, both in terms of quality and quantity. Château Cheval Blanc 1982 is one of the finest successes. The intense and slightly tiled color shows us the age of the wine. A very intense and spicy nose with notes of cocoa, coffee and a hint of smoke. On the palate, the attack is silky, soft and non-aggressive. The wine has velvety tannins and a significant richness on the palate. This Château Cheval Blanc is remarkable and does not show the signs of an old wine. This incredible longevity will seduce lovers of great wines.

(9-2009) Bright ruby with lots of development at the rim - really quite pale. Only lightly scented. Then very warm and rich on the front palate with a slight lack of focus. A bit smudgy and velvety. The finish is drying out a little. Definitely on the way down. Did it get a bit hot? Or was there a shortage of vat space? Clean minty finish. Fresh - it would be a lovely drink in isolation.... Pleasant without being a standout and certainly not robust.

(11-1999) A charming, winsome wine but more to it than is revealed at first glance. In 1995 a majour horizontal of 1982s in Hong Kong, the lightest of the first growths, a lovely wine. In 1996 in Brussels, an undramatic but harmounious nose. More interesting on the palate: sweet, elegant, stylish. In 1997, among a wine variety of 1982s, my joint highest marke with Petrus and Le Pin. Later than summer, rich, bricky bouquet; well evolved with extract btu with a slightly bitter tannic-irn finish. In 1999 showing well with lovely flavour, still tannic.

(06-2009) During its first 10-12 years of life, this was a perfect wine, but it now seems to be in a stage where the fruit is still present, but the previous exuberance and intensity have faded slightly. There is plenty of amber at the edge, and this medium to full-bodied wine shows notes of menthol, cedar, spice box, plums, and black cherries.

(06-2001) All in harmony. Deserves its reputation. Dark ruby. Smoke, black truffle, berry and cherry. Full-bodied, velvety and fine.

(04-2012) If a wine can be hedonistic and seductive at the same time, it would be the 1982 Cheval Blanc. I had the privilege of tasting this wine twice over the past 6 months and both times I fell in love with it from the first sip. It has the maturity and depth of a beautifully aged 30 year old while it maintains the freshness and structure of a wine at least 10 years younger. This is a perfect Cheval Blanc.
