Tasting Note : Chateau Cheval Blanc 1967

Chateau Cheval Blanc 1967

Aromas of raspberry on the nose with tobacco and cedar wood. The leafy style, due to its age, gives the wine a pleasant farm yard character. On the palate, the wine has a suprising level of acidity that you would not expect for an 43 years old wine from a vintage like 1967. The fruits are still present, however we can see the wine has reached is peak a while ago and starts now to decline.

I must admit that trying this Cheval Blanc blind, I was not expecting it to be so aged and it was a nice surprise to see it could still stands its grounds in the glass and was a real pleasure to drink.
