Moncharm | Ch. Cheval Blanc 2000
A label reflecting the essence the Cheval Blanc estates; the 2000 label is a great concoction of equal measures of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It boasts a stunning purple color accompanied with a bit reserved, but appealing bouquet of lush blackberries, blueberries, mocha and truffles. On aeration, the bouquet opens up with the notes of liquorice brand new leather and Menthol. The palate is full-bodied with mild acidity and strong tannins which extends in a short but sweet finish.
At Moncharm we believe this exemplary level can grow up to match the legendary vintages like the 1947 and 1949, but it will require some patience. This label approachable and will be in its best for at least two decades.
