1953 Château Cheval Blanc St. Émilion Grand Cru Wine Tasting Note

1953 Château Cheval Blanc  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89

Much better on the palate, with its lush textures, than on the nose, due to its strong nutty character. More than fully mature, if you are sitting on any, the wine is going to continue losing fruit from here.

This bottle was more than fully mature, with serious brickng in its color. Better on the complex nose, with its truffle, stone, plum, earth, smoke, cigar box and cola scents than on the palate. While the texture is pure softness, coupled with the patina of age, the fruit is fading, leaving you with soft, earthy plums and cherries. Drink up if you are lucky enough to have a bottle.
