(55% merlot and 45% cabernet franc) Good deep red-ruby color. Currant, smoke and chocolate on the nose, with hints of shoe polish and licorice. Juicy and lively in the mouth, with firm acidity and a solid tannic spine. A bit youthfully austere today, but finishes with noteworthy persistence. Very promising for this second wine.

Readers should take note of the estate's second wine, the delicious, up-front, Cheval-like Le Petit Cheval. The 2005 may be the finest example of this cuvee yet produced. Lastly, readers should be aware that the owners of Cheval Blanc recently purchased the nearby La Tour du Pin Figeac, so they now have another 20-acre vineyard which they hope to bring up to an exciting level of quality.

Has a gorgeous nose of blackberry, sweet tobacco and green olive. Medium- to full-bodied, with seamless tannins and a long, pretty finish. Needs a little more concentration to be outstanding. Already very enjoyable. The second wine of Cheval-Blanc.

Consumed @ THE VOL 94 in Pasadena. Strong initial flavor, but lacking something in the middle. Tastes the same caliber as cheaper $30 Bordeaux wines. Will never buy Petit Cheval again considering its inflated price.

This wine is getting really good although the RP rating is not terrific. We like it a lot!
