Le Petit Cheval 2019

Cheval Blanc

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 96.0

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.

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Château Cheval Blanc Le Petit Cheval is a solid (better than solid, actually) second wine offering beautiful elegance, purity, and finesse, which is what this estate does better than anyone. Complex notes of red and black currants, forest floor, cedarwood, and tobacco all define the bouquet, and its medium-bodied, with silky, fine-grained tannins, no hard edges, and just a seamless, elegant, layered style that will drink spectacularly well for 10-15 years.

This is a gorgeous rippling wine with a clear muscular frame. Its a year where there are more tannins than in 2018, and this has a wonderful two-step, fruit tannin fruit tannin rhythm that propels the wine forward through the palate. Iris flowers and berry fruit, with smoked-tinged cedar oak. Harvest September 10 to October 4.
