Le Petit Cheval 2010

Cheval Blanc

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 95.0

Benefitting from Cheval Blanc’s outstanding terroir, this Saint-Émilion estate’s second wine is anything but second best. 10% of the first wine goes into the production of the outstanding Petit Cheval, which is made from a blend of Merlot (c.70%) and Cabernet Franc (c.30%) and is aged in 50% new oak barrels. Their rich terroir is formed of gravel, clay and sandy soils all which sit atop a sedimentary rock – this unusual mixed terrain is what allows Cheval Blanc to stand out. Château Cheval Blanc are committed to honouring the land that produces their magnificent wines and at the forefront of recent work has been an unwavering commitment to biodiversity and agroecology in a bid to allow the vineyards to thrive and to ensure the longevity of the estate amidst the ongoing crisis of climate change.



Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, Le Petit Cheval 2010 has a deep garnet-brick color. The nose is still incredibly youthful, bounding out of the glass with notes of plum preserves, blackberry pie, and blueberry compote, leading to wafts of Indian spices and fallen leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is rich and downright delicious, featuring mouthcoating black and blue fruit layers, with a firm, grainy texture and plenty of freshness, finishing with great length.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The superb Le Petit Cheval boasts layers of toasty black fruit on the nose with dark plum, macerated dark cherries and a faint touch of the sea. The palate is well balanced with fine tannins. This is very cohesive with well-integrated oak, classic in style on the finish that is long and sophisticated. Tasted January 2014.
