Of recent vintages I think only the 2009 can give it a run for its money. A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc the wine has a sweet nose of menthol melted licorice boysenberry blueberry and cassis. A broad wine with compelling purity a layered texture and sweet tannin with hints of coffee and earth in the background this is by far the best Cheval Blanc since 1990 and before 2009. It is a legend in the making and can actually be drunk now as the tannins have nearly melted away. This is a beauty with incredibly complex aromatics. Drink it over the next 25-30 years.

Fresh mineral berry and earth aromas. Decadent. Full-bodied yet refined and silky with a lovely long finish that goes on and on with tobacco berry cherry and spices. It's not the 1998 but it's very good indeed. Best after... Fresh mineral berry and earth aromas. Decadent.
