Lot #118. Cheval Blanc 1971

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 20 JR.
". . . served blind initially alongside Monte Bello 1971. Wonderfully sweet, round and florally aromatic with a beautifully smooth texture. A brilliant wine, even if not a blockbuster, and one that I was given blind by owner Jacques Hébrard when I visited the château while researching The Great Wine Book in 1981. I'm delighted to be able to add a tasting note on it to our database – even if it is arguably more enthusiastic than explicatory. Still going strong." Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, Jan 2017
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Notes: 1 Very top shoulder, scuffed capsules, signs of seepage, 2 torn, heavily scuffed, heavily stained.
