2021 le petit cheval, saint-emilion grand cru

Why We're Buying

Le Petit Cheval may be a second wine, but it's no slouch. The Bordeaux red blend contains roughly 70% cabernet franc and 30% merlot, yielding a complex and succulent body. The combination of black cherry, caramel, and tobacco notes ages well for up to 20 years.

Vinous

The 2021 Le Petit Cheval is fabulous. A parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon typically used for the Grand Vin gives the 2021 its core of dark fruit. Heady and explosive in the glass, the 2021 offers up a spellbinding array of dark fruit rose petal, mocha, incense and licorice. All the elements meld together so effortlessly. The 2021 is a dazzling Petit Cheval. That's all there is to it. Barrel Sample: 92-94
