Cheval Blanc 1934 reveals a complex and intense, quite Burgundian style in this vintage considered the most beautiful of a rather poor decade.

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS AND FEATURES OF THE VINTAGE

1934 is a warm, early year for the interwar period: the harvest began early on September 14th and ended September 28th.

Harvest of 36 hectoliters / hectare is of generous quantity compared with the average of that time.

TASTING NOTES

15th April 2010

The nose is evolved but shows an expanded range of flavors: red fruit jam and kernel fruits, lily, smoke and chocolate. Advanced aromas are also sensitive: parchment, undergrowth, rust.

The attack is a little tired. The mid-palate is fleshy and rich. The tannic structure is very well defined and a remarkable freshness gives the wine a long and incredible precision.

Complex aromas of caramel, truffle and raspberry jam give way to a long finish dominated by smoky and cocoa flavors, reminiscent of a great cigar.
