1964 Château Cheval Blanc;
Fill just below neck, deep ruby, thin orange rim. Deep fruit, marzipan, fruity, tropical flowers, opulent and intense. Superb texture, fresh acidity, ripe tannins, lot's of structure and fruit, some alcohol notes brings it down a bit, very long and fruity finish. 94
Served blind, but I nailed both wine and vintage. With the 66 Cheval Blanc clearly in mind after tasting it only a few weeks back, the châteaux style was clearly evident, and the vintage was then easier to detect.
