1981 Château Cheval Blanc MC Saint-Emilion 1er GCC (1 bottle; 0,750)
Old bottle which is kept in perfect cellar.
Level: low neck
Capsule: perfect
Label is very good but a bit dusted.
Neal Martin 92:
The Cheval Blanc 1981 is a beautiful wine, far more charming than the 1982 served at the same dinner. It has a very pure, nonchalant nose. There is something joyful and carefree about the palate with tensile tannins, crisp acidity and a lovely wild strawberry finish.
Jabcis Robinson 18/20! Tasted: Jun 2015
Served blind next to La Mission of the same vintage. Very dark ruby still and obviously very sweet and ripe. It was served blind and I thought it could be a Pomerol. Round and sweet with great density. Very clean. Clearly one of the finest 1981s (though I have very fond memories of Certan de May 1981).
