A deep, ruby red appearance. The intensity of aromas is very pronounced. On the nose, it conjures up a cocktail of red fruit, raspberry and cherry, and candied fruit, black-berry, blueberry and plum. Swirling unveils a floral bouquet of Austin rose and lilac, together with a hint of almond. The tannins are ripe and silky, smooth and rounded. The wine is supple and full and the medium-length finish leaves an impression of freshness. The absence of oak is worthy of mention.
2013 mainly featured a rainy June which disturbed flowering and a hot and dry summer.
Thanks to a historically low yield in volumes, 2013 Château Cheval Blanc is a wine full of freshness and smoothness.
