International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 94-97
Bright full ruby. Extraordinarily sweet, liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, blueberry, violet, tobacco leaf, caramel and smoky oak. Extremely dense and powerfully concentrated, but with a texture like liquid velvet. Confectionery sweetness seems almost too much, but it's hard to imagine any taster turning down another glass of this elixir. As ripe and thick as this is, it boasts urgent, sappy fruit and great lift from the 50% Cabernet Franc. The extraordinarily long finish stains the palate with fruit. It will be fascinating to taste this wine alongside the great, more classic '98 10 and 20 years from now.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 100
This closed, backward blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc boasts a saturated purple color along with a reticent but striking bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, truffles, and mocha. In spite of its tightness, aeration reveals scents of licorice, menthol, and saddle leather. Opulent and full-bodied, with low acidity, sweet tannin, and a 60-second finish, it is unquestionably as profound as the 1990 and 1982. I still believe the 2000 has the potential to be the most compelling Cheval Blanc since the mythical 1947 and 1949, but patience is required. It should merit a three digit score in 7-10 years, but it is closed at present. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030+.

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 93
Fresh mineral, berry and earth aromas. Decadent. Full-bodied, yet refined and silky, with a lovely, long finish that goes on and on, with tobacco, berry, cherry and spices. It's not the 1998, but it's very good indeed. Best after 2006.
