Description:

Chateau Cheval Blanc 1964
St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classe (A)
u: two top shoulder, one top-high shoulder, label staining and bin soil

The 1964 is a wonderfully rich, thick, powerful, and concentrated wine that is the most authoritative Cheval Blanc produced since the monumental wines made by this chateau in 1947, 1948, and 1949. Opaque dark ruby, with only some amber, and a powerful, yet restrained bouquet of roasted ripe fruit, cedar, herbs, and gravelly, mineral scents, the wine remains amazingly young and tannic, with layer upon layer of ripe fruit. This is a heavyweight, old-style Cheval Blanc that should be pure nectar for at least another 10-15 years. It continues to evolve at a snail's pace. Anticipated maturity: now-2010." R. Parker, 95 pts. 10/94
3 bottles
Estimate $1,500-2,200
