Le Petit Cheval Blanc, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru | Red | 2000 | Bordeaux | Right Bank - Vivino Rating 4.4
Intro: The 2016 Le Petit Cheval Blanc is all Sauvignon Blanc brought up in barrel. It boasts a vivid light gold color to go with notes of key lime pie, crushed citrus, and white peach that build beautifully with time in the glass. It's balanced, medium-bodied, and pure.

Tasting Notes: Robert Parker 90-92 Points: “This offering has often been an afterthought, but the 2000 possesses some of its bigger sibling’s character… offers sweet, concentrated, plush flavors, wonderful opulence, and super density. This beauty will be drinkable upon release, and will last for 12-15 years. Believe it or not, the 2000 Le Petit Cheval is better than some vintages of Cheval Blanc have been over the last two decades. (RP) April 2001
