"This is the bottle that attests to numerous eulogies I have heard. The Château Cheval Blanc 1948 has a nose that duped me into thinking it was the 1982, and yet the bricking on the rim gives away its age. It is high-toned with kirsch, cedar, maraschino cherries and salted licorices. Powerful and opulent, this kaleidoscope of aromas leaves you intoxicated, even without imbibing the wine. The palate is supple and lithe, blessed with satin-like tannins and an intense, effervescent finish that is brilliantly focused. Layers of vibrant red fruit seem to just wash over you, sensual and profound in equal measure. This is a sensational post-war Saint Emilion that finally delivers everything I expected. The 1948 Cheval Blanc is a masterpiece. Tasted September 2014." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Jul 28, 2016)
