Château Cheval Brun Saint Emilion 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Château Cheval Brun|
Owned by the Rivière family, which also owns a Saint-Émilion-based negociant firm, this estate has produced a generous, ripe wine. The 85% Merlot in the blend gives a jammy, rich character that will soften and broaden as the wine matures. A firm structure within the rich fruitiness will allow the wine to develop. Drink from 2024.
Warm cherry paste and currant confiture notes are laced with singed cedar and apple wood hints, picking up light incense and sanguine threads on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,000 cases made, 400 cases imported.
