Press review

Jean-Marc Quarin : 15,5

Lovely purple color of good intensity. Nose of average aromatic intensity, appearing fruity and fresh. Very smooth on entry, the wine melts on the mid-palate, becomes graceful, and evolves with fruity and fine cocoa flavors. With well coated tannins, it finishes on a good tasty length.

The Wine Doctor (4/1/2008) : 16-17+/20

This, the second wine, is more strongly dominated by Cabernet Franc in this vintage than is usual, as it accounts for 70% of the blend, the remainder being Merlot. There is a meaty density here, but fruit purity too, and a brightness which is appealing. On the palate a very firm acid structure combined with rather soft tannins to support a layer of bright and peppery flavours. It has a good grip, and a direct, well defined and elegant style. For a second wine, this stylish effort over-performs.

The Wine Review (Ch'ng Poh Tiong) # 140 (4/14/2008) : XXX1/2

Capsicum, hebaceous, Sichuan dried chilli, red chilli. The tannins are smooth, fresh and elegant. Much like the fruit. (This is the second wine of Chateau Cheval Blanc).
