Le Petit Cheval Bordeaux Blanc 2021 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
“Thanks to rather cool conditions in 2021, Bordeaux’s white grapes preserved acidity and vibrant aromatics, delivering the finest set of dry whites since 2017. Chiseled and intense, they exhibit considerable potential.” - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
"Two-thousand twenty-one is a brilliant vintage for the dry whites of Bordeaux. It is an unusual year in which the wines have the energy that is often associated with cooler seasons, but the textural richness that is often only achieved in warm years. That duality makes the best 2021 whites compelling and absolutely riveting in the finest examples.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
For more than 10 years, Château Cheval Blanc has challenged itself to produce a great white wine on this small 6.6 hectares vineyard nested in the parcels of its elder. This wine is a genuine variation, in white, of the identity of Cheval Blanc, and benefits from the same exacting standards and rigor as its elder sibling. It is crafted from a blend of some 12 different plots, on sandy and clay soils, where 80% sauvignon blanc and 20% sémillon fit perfectly.
