THE LEGENDARY CHEVAL-BLANC 1947 COLLECTION\n\nONE OF THE GREATEST WINES OF ALL TIME OFFERED IN EXTRAORDINARY FORMATS. A TRUE RARITY AND UNIQUE ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION\n\nCHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC\n\nThe estate of Cheval-Blanc is situated at the extremity of Saint-Emilion bordering on Pomerol, with views of l'Evangile and La Conseillante, and offers a very curious mixture of soil and subsoil areas whose nature changes at each step. A vineyard walk along the roadside clearly illustrates this; at Cheval-Blanc the soils are rich in clay, gravel, deep tan in colour, the soil looks nurished and moist. A few meters away, as one encroches upon La Dominique, the soil change is evidenced by more sand mixed with clay, altogether a lighter colour, more beige than tan. Their respective wines are at opposite ends of a spectrum, those of Cheval-Blanc retain breed and class. The result of Cheval-Blanc's soil diversity and an extremely well-chosen selection of grape varieties, combined with the assiduous care taken over the elevage and winemaking, coalesces to make a wine of a great softness, body and delicacy, plus a delicious bouquet, but most particularly a distinctive style which makes it instantly recognizable and more importantly in demand. No other wine in the appelation has a broad adrinking plateau as that Cheval-Blanc.\n\nVintage 1947 *****\n"The second of the three great post-war vintage. An increasingly hot summer followed by harvesting in almost tropical conditions. The grapes had an exceptionally high sugar content but the heat caused serious fermentation problems, resulting in quite a few wines suffering from high volatile acidity. On the whole, exceptionally rich almost voluptuous wines" Michael Broadbent, Vintage Wine book\n\nChâteau Cheval-Blanc--Vintage 1947\nSaint-Emilion, 1er grand cru classé (A)\nAll of the following wines were reconditionned at the chateau in 2010 and are in perfect condition. They all have new caspules, new labels and new original wooden cases from the chateau\n\nTasting note: Having a 1947 Cheval Blanc served out of an impeccably stored magnum twice in three months during the summer of 1994, and on another occasion, from an extraordinary jerobaum, made me once again realize what a great job I have. The only recent Bordeaux vintage that comes even remotely close to the richness, texture, and viscosity of so many of these right bank 1947s is 1982. What can I say about this mammoth wine that is more like port than dry red table wine? The 1947 Cheval Blanc exhibits such a thick texture it could double as motor oil. The huge nose of fruitcake, chocolate, leather, coffee, and Asian spices is mind-boggling. The unctuous texture and richness of sweet fruit are amazing. Consider the fact that this wine is, technically, appallingly deficient in acidity and excessively high in alcohol. Moreover, its volatile acidity levels would be considered intolerable by modern day oenologists. Yet how can they explain that after 47 years the wine is still remarkably fresh, phenomenally concentrated, and profoundly complex? It has to make you wonder about the direction of modern day winemaking. Except for one dismal, murky, troubled, volatile double-magnum, this wine has been either perfect or nearly perfect every time I have had it. 100 points.
