Tasting Notes and Scores
Dark ruby with a purple hue, this appealing style of Cheval Blanc offers the tell-tale nose of sweet black fruits, coconut, vanilla, and a touch of menthol. The wine is medium-bodied, elegant, purely made, and while it lacks volume and richness in the mouth, it is soft, delicious, and typical of this property's wines. This tasty, charming 1993 should drink well for 7-8 years.
87 points – Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #109, Feb 1997)
Tasted at the infamous “Dodgy Bottle Offline”. The Cabernet Franc dominates the nose on the ’93 Cheval: cedar, sandalwood, cooked meats, smoke with just a hint of wild mint. The palate is well balanced, again, the Cabernet Franc “over-seasoning” this masculine Cheval Blanc, leading to a leafy, savoury finish that would benefit from a little more depth. This is a very agreeable Cheval but it is maturing quicker than I expected. Drink now-2013. Tasted July 2009.
