Though many '75s never shed their tannins, this shows good balance, with thick-textured cherry, raisin and cedar flavors and a long, spicy finish.

Cheval Blanc was one of the more forward and fun to drink 1975s fifteen years ago, but its evolution has slowed considerably. It reveals some of the kinky, exotic Cheval Blanc complexity, with chocolate, mint, cedar, and sweet fruit filling the moderately intense bouquet. Although the color displays considerable amber at the edge, it has a deep rubygarnet center, as well as plenty of sweet, ripe fruit with noticeable glycerin and extract. It is a rich, firmly-styled Cheval Blanc that juxtaposes power and tough tannin with plenty of sweet jammy fruit. I admire and enjoy this fully mature wine, which is capable of lasting for 15+ more years.

Cheval Blanc is located in the town of Saint-Emilion, on the edge of the Pomerol appellation. Rated 1st Grand Cru Classé A, it shares the top ranking of Saint-Emilion with Château AusoneAngelus and Pavie. With the Premiers Crus Classés of the Médoc, they constitute the most prestigious estates of all of Bordeaux. Since 1998, Bernard Arnault and Albert Frère have been the owners with the wish to vitalize the Cheval Blanc estate "with respect for its history, as its heritage, and in total confidence in the teams in place. "


Cheval Blanc is one of the most regular wines in the world with the ability to be excellent at any age. The greatest vintages of the estate: 1921, 1945, 1947, 1949, 1950, 1953, 1955, 1959, 1961, 1964, 1975, 1982, 1985, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2000.


The percentage of grape varieties is atypical for the right bank of the Gironde but in reality it is in perfect harmony with the nature of the soil: Cabernet Franc (49%), Merlot (47%), Cabernet Sauvignon (4%). There is therefore a mosaic of grape varieties within the single plot of 37 hectares. The estate produces the "Grand Vin de Cheval Blanc" in red as well as a second wine "Le petit Cheval", which is available in red and white.


Powerful, without aggressiveness, spherical, silky, always elegant and racy in its Cabernet Franc gangue that surrounds the Merlot, the Cheval Blanc wine is close to a Pomerol, without completely resembling a Saint-Emilion ... >> To find out more: read the article "Cheval Blanc, Premier Grand Cru Classé A"
