Lovely and succulent. Broad, plummy and settled. Beautifully balanced and sexy. What a wine.

You know you’re having a special wine night when a ‘90 Cheval Blanc is 4th out of 4 wines. Not as rich and ballsy as the ‘98, not as velvet Jesus as the ‘82.....but still top tier. Perhaps a little green and linear. Drinking young and not in full strut yet.

Once again Cheval Blanc shows why it's such a legendary wine. The perfume (pencil, leather, Stone, braised beef, patchouly) is so hypnotic it draws you in and you do not want to let it go. Some of my favorite wine experiences, have involved various vintages of the "white pony." 1990 has an amazing reputation in this bottle did not disappoint the etched St-Emilion earth meets cab franc and merlot - like a great romance novel ... this wine me live happily ever after. Coming in first place next to Petrus (95) and Angelus (95) - in a blind tasting at Gwen in LA at wineLA "best bottle" dinner 2.8.17

Damn I wish it was my birthday every month. This was absolute perfection and despite the amazing wines we had, clearly the wine of the night.

A statement of sincere mastery. Texture, depth and power are balancing resolve, against a curtain of effuse herbaceous lift. Unmistakable in deliciousness and craftsmanship.

It doesn't get any better! The 1990 Cheval Blanc was singing when we had it on Sat night. It was rich yet ethereal, which one would assume that these two descriptors cannot coexist in a wine. It had an intoxicating nose of flowers, sandalwood and sweet tobacco with well integrated tannins. A perfect balance of still existing intense lush fruit with a great energy and overall refined quality.

dark chocolate covered cherry, hint of cola, succulent green, raspberry liqueur, very expressive. Great structure still.

Ripe blackberry and full fruit on nose and palate. Long finish. Lovely. Delicate cigar wrapper.
