One of the stronger second wines I have tasted from manager/winemaker, Pierre Lurton, the 2006 Le Petit Cheval exhibits a dark ruby hue along with sweet red and black fruit notes intermixed with underbrush, forest floor, and licorice characteristics. This is a seductive second wine that cascades over the palate with no hard edges. Enjoy it over the next 6-7 years.
Bright and aromatic, with roses and raspberries. Full-bodied, with fine tannins, clean acidity and a juicy, delicious finish. Second wine of Cheval-Blanc. Best after 2010. 1,000 cases made.
