Château Cheval Blanc, 1er grand cru classé A 2009

RRP £690

Bordering the Pomerol appellation, Cheval Blanc in 2009 has 55.9% of Merlot, lifted with Cabernet Franc (42.5%) and a tiny dose of Cabernet Sauvignon (1.6%). This mystical, beguiling bouquet says, “drink me”, Alice in Wonderland-style. Like a magic potion, with oh-so classical notes of mint chocolate chip to help the medicine go down. Likewise in the mouth, this wine is miraculous. Emotional, and memorable, it is above all a real joy to drink.
