1921 was an excellent vintage for the best wines of Saint-Emilion, and especially for Château Cheval Blanc.
The great heat during the harvest concentrated sugars in the grapes, allowing to vinify a wine of remarkable complexity.

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS

1921 is remembered for the scorching heat that enveloped the Bordeaux region during the month of September.

FEATURES OF THE VINTAGE

TASTIING NOTES

15th April 2010

This vintage is a perfect marriage of sweet richness and acid tension that allowed the wine to age remarkably.

On the nose, aromas of red fruits, leather and honey are easily noticeable. The sensation of sweetness is intense.

In the mouth, the flavors of fruit brandy, leather, wax and caramel dominate, enhanced with notes of very ripe plums and dried flowers. Round and full, driven by still very vivid acid tension that sustains the richness of aromas, the mouth ends with a finale of an exceptional length.
