2016 le petit cheval blanc
Why We're Buying
Le Petit Cheval Blanc comes from Château Cheval Blanc, one of four estates in Bordeaux to achieve the rank of Premier Grand Cru Classé (A). This second wine is youthful and fresh, with minerally and flint notes swirling in the nose. The Bordeaux white blend, which retails well into the triple digits, appreciated each year from 2017 to 2021.
The refined, yellow grapefruit nose and the elegant first impression on the palate hardly prepare you for the tidal wave of flavor and freshness that then hits you. Yet, the wine remains so light-footed and delicate. Then you glide into the distance through the very long, silky finish. Drink or hold.
