Had this like 2 months ago but still worth noting. This wine began my current addiction to Cheval Blanc. It was smokey and sweet in the nose. Blueberries and mesquite. Super cool. The finish had tons of fruit and tasted a little like that blue raspberry slushies. There could be more balance and intensity in the finish, but this wine is so enjoyable it's borderline erotic. I gave it 94 points.

One of the stars of the incredible 82 vintage. Not being that familiar with the property I only ordered a 6-pack en premieur at the massive price of 39 per clatter(the same price of all of the 1st growths except Latour).Started on them dudes around 90 and admit I ended up trading a bunch for some of the 2000 futures,(at an average of 1800 per). The 82s were magical and would make a wine drinker out of Carrie Nation. Great having you on board Z. WW

Decided that today wopuld be a perfect time to open the last of these mohicans. As CBs' a Sissy White drinker normally I thot I'd be nice and have a nice white burgandy for her drinking just in case. After putting her love schnozz in the glass I had to fight for a 40/60 split of this killer bottling. Hopefully this doesn't make her into a red drinker and competing wif the weener on every opening.HAVE I CREATED A MONSTER???????????? Nah...... Ww

$39 per......good gawd..... Glad that this one made it in style it appears. the 82 CB would've made a red wine drinker out of the most ardent Teetotaller........
