This is a wine that soars to new heights with its brightness and weightlessness
. The balance of serene fruit that’s perfectly ripe. Full-bodied yet tight and polished
where it seems delicate and compressed, with berry, chocolate and walnut character. The finish is endless and poised
. Wine of the vintage? 53% merlot, 46% cabernet franc and 1% cabernet sauvignon. ~99-100 JS
One of the stars of the vintage
is the striking 2022 Cheval Blanc, a blend of 53% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon that bursts from the glass with aromas of mulberries, cherries, and wild berries mingled with mint, orange zest, pencil lead, vine smoke, and exotic spices. Medium to full-bodied, velvety, and layered
, it's rich and gourmand, with beautifully refined tannins, lively acids and a long, saline, pungently perfumed finish
. Harvest began on 29 August, with all the Merlot picked before the month was out, and the result is a wine that is as vibrant as it is lavish. ~97-99+ WA
