Type Red Vintage 1958 Region Bordeaux Producer Chateau Cheval Blanc Wine Advocate - Wine Spectator - Available: 1
1958 was a warm and rather wet year. The vines still suffered from the effects of 1956. This Cheval Blanc was very elegant in its youth and still has a delicious, fruity taste profile.
This vintage immediately offers a very intense fruit nose, accompanied by notes of fireplace smoke and pipe tobacco. Raspberry and blackcurrant put signature to this very Cabernet Franc typed nose. Indeed, two years only after the frost which particularly hit the Merlot vines of the domain, the blend of 1958 Cheval Blanc is mainly made of Cabernet franc.
The palate is remarkable for its perfectly preserved tension and freshness. The extremely elegant mid—palate is fresh and continues until a very long finish. (tasting 20th July 2015)
