(08-2018) Slightly musty at first, gets nicer with aeration, shows depth, peat, smoke, forest floor and spices. Firm start, surprisingly juicy and fresh-looking, red fruity, with herbal spices, malt, still shows some tannin, plus well-integrated acidity. Ends on liquorice. Degrades a little faster than Ausone, but should hold up longer due to its tannin and acid structure.


Château Cheval Blanc 1973 was a huge surprise. The nose is intense like a wine from a great vintage. In the mouth it has a subtlety beyond anything we could imagine from this year. This wine has the nobility of Cheval Blanc, and it was not in its power, though it has plenty - but in its complexity and subtlety. In a blind tasting, no one would ever cite 1973. It has a very beautiful substance, woven and full like a noble wine. And what is amazing is that the wine is quite cloudy and the colour is not very reassuring. More proof of the magic of wine.
