Winemaker's Notes

This estate has been well-known for several centuries and is located 18 miles north of the city of Bordeaux. A luscious and fruity Bordeaux wine made by Dominique Hebrard of the Cheval Blanc family.

60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc

Nice crimson color and lovely aromas of cherry with just a hint of vanilla. Well-rounded and fleshy in the mouth, with well-balanced tannins. A long, silky finish.

I purchased this for the price and the vintage year-pretty decent considering it's so young, and can't wait to try it again in a few years!
