The 1985 Cheval Blanc is a great wine. Rich and very complete, this classified growth of Saint Emilion offers remarkable freshness and notes of sweetness. A wine that despite its old age has not yet reached its peak. However, it is ready to be tasted.

Tom Cannavan (01-2005) Also very dark, with a black coffee-coloured rim. There is coffee on the nose too, with a seductive mocha note and a weight of fudge, black plum and deep, ripe, chocolaty fruit. A totally sumptuous first impression. Spices and clove emerge, with dark Demerara notes. On the palate this is just beautiful: fabulous weight and balsamic thickness, with sweet, full fruit and mouth coating tannins and dry fruit extract. Yet there is such finesse, with silky texture, elegant acidity and the tannins staying purposeful. An absolutely outstanding wine drinking perfectly now, and one of my great Bordeaux experiences.

(06-2017) Served blind at the end of a run of Pomerols and quite at home in this sequence but denser, more savoury, a little gamey and still so alive! Great concentration.

(08-2018) Medium garnet-brick colored, the 1985 Cheval Blanc sashays out of the glass with provocative notes of sandalwood, cinnamon stick, cardamom, dried lavender and wilted roses over a core of new leather, cigar box, prunes, raisin cake and dusty soil. Medium-bodied, soft and silken textured, it has tons of mature, melt-in-your-mouth flavors and a very long exotic spice-laced finish.

(08-2012) The label is very damaged, almost unreadable. Perfect level, in the neck of the bottle. This bottle is from a good, humid cellar. The nose is long to open up but after 1 hour it expresses all of its black fruit aromas, sweet spices, cedar. But this is nothing compared to the mouth that flirts with perfection - nothing but softness, roundness, opulence and length. What a pleasure. To your health!

(06-2000) Medium deep, rich, with mature rim; a lovely fully evolved bouquet; perfect sweetness, body, flavour, tannin and acidity.
