Reviews for 2011 Le Petit Cheval Bordeaux Blend

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Offers a plush supple nicely rounded feel offering notes of creamy plum and cherry preserves with perfumy spice gliding in on the finish. Still youthfully primal but there are no angles or austerity here just pure fruit...

This is well done for the second wine of Cheval with orange peel and chocolate with hints of hazelnut. Full to medium body with fine tannins and a lovely finish. This is the first year that the wines of Cheval were made... This is well done for the second wine of Cheval with orange peel and chocolate with hints of hazelnut. Full to medium body with fine tannins and a lovely finish. This is the first year that the wines of Cheval were made parcel by parcel in the new winery.

75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc from a selection of young vines off the Cheval Blanc estate. 50% new oak. A little more expressive on the nose than the grand vin with cherry cranberry mocha caramel and floral notes... 75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc from a selection of young vines off the Cheval Blanc estate. 50% new oak. A little more expressive on the nose than the grand vin with cherry cranberry mocha caramel and floral notes. Rich and creamy palate texture with powdery tannins. All of the elegance of the grand vin with a touch more opulence right out of the gate this will be a hedonistic indulgence in its youth and will certainly continue to evolve through 2022-2027.
