Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
90

Eighty thousand bottles of 2004 Cheval Blanc were produced from a blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot. Subtle herb, menthol, cranberry, black currant, and licorice aromas emerge from this dark ruby/plum-colored wine. It is medium-bodied and elegant with plenty of sweet fruit, but not a lot of weight or intensity. The complexity and nobility of Cheval Blanc’s gravelly terroir is apparent in this delicate, subtle St.-Emilion. Give it a few years to develop additional aromatics, and drink it over the following 12-15. Drink 2010-2025.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index annual 10-year on tasting from an ex-château bottle. The Cheval Blanc 2004 has a masculine, tertiary bouquet with dried herbs and leather infusing the red fruit profile, the Merlot more expressive than the Cabernet Franc at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with a composed, generous opening, darker fruit than the nose suggest: mulberry and black plum infused with liquorice. It is well balanced and harmonious, daring to show more persistency than the Petrus '04 tasted alongside. This is a classic Cheval Blanc that should drink well over the next 20 years.

Mature, brick-edged mahogany; mocha, caramel, merlot fruit-cake and mown hay maturity; elegantly balanced middleweight with a fresh acidity and fine tannin; gently caramel-sweet in flavor, supple and fresh, long across the palate, still with a lightly dry tannin texture, and long to finish. Not large scale, but complete and just about ready to drink, if better in a couple of years. Has perhaps not fulfilled its early promise, and now a very good, rather than a special Cheval. Drink 2015- 25+
