ChateauCheval Blanc1966 St. Emilion, Premier Cru Classe (A) u: one very top shoulder, two top shoulder, wear and capsule corrosion, two slightly protruding corks, glue striping, label fading, evidence of possible old seepage "Following from a delicious half-bottle in February, the Château Cheval Blanc 1966 put in another impressive performance just a few months later. Served blind, it has a typical bouquet for the vintage: tobacco and cigar box, the fruit in the background, tertiary and classic in style. The palate is very well balanced and errs more towards the Left Bank than the Right Bank: structured, firm, aloof but compelling. This is a sublime expression of Cheval Blanc and it deserves to be drunk over the next 8-10 years." N. Martin for TWA, 94 pts. 09/14 3 bottles Estimate $1,800-2,400
