1993 is a rather contrasting vintage in the Bordeaux wine region. However, Château Cheval Blanc 1993 is a great success for this vintage. A concentrated nose with aromas of prune and stone fruit. On the palate, the attack is round and the tannins are very present. Charming, you will be able to appreciate all the potential of this wine already at maturity.

LES FORTS DE LATOUR Magnum 1993
(10-2004) Tasted blind and not decanted. Always taken in the same box. Dark red color. Medium to good intensity. Slight evolution. Animal note on the nose. End. Caramel. A very soft, tactile wine that advances, caressing and even fat on the palate, more aromatic than in its youth. It ends long and always caressing on a complex taste of caramel, plum, fruit and, yet, there is still liveliness.
Dark ruby with a purple hue, this appealing style of Cheval Blanc offers the tell-tale nose of sweet black fruits, coconut, vanilla, and a touch of menthol. The wine is medium-bodied, elegant, purely made, and while it lacks volume and richness in the mouth, it is soft, delicious, and typical of this property's wines. This tasty, charming 1993 should drink well for 7-8 years.
