Wine Critic Reviews:

...a kaleidoscopic bouquet with dark plum, iodine, minerals and a touch of kirsch that develops with aeration, a perfect symmetry between Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The palate has sweet, sappy entry with crisp acidity...The Cabernet Franc begins to exert its influence with time and it has a svelte, very harmonious, youthful finish that one step further would be almost viscous in texture...there is not doubt that this is the real deal... eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Sokolin 1982 Cheval Blanc Tasting Notes:

A massive red that takes space and wins affection in a heartbeat, rightfully claiming its status of a classic. Its full, luscious body is packed and loaded with raspberries, blackberries, marzipan, orange zest and toffee, if one had to pick out just a few notes from the enchanting realm this wine cultivates. The palate is grazed with this force of pleasure, its flavors overlapping in a heated dialogue on your tastebuds, the best sort of overwhelmed you've ever been. The finish is prolonged and pulsating, taking over and leaving you no choice but to give in and see where it washes you ashore.

This is one of the most impressive vintages the year had seen produced, praised and wanted globally. Since it's just entering adulthood and shows off the structure capable of withstanding many, many years more in the cellar, wine experts predict a bright and long future ahead of it. If you want a bottle of your own, you'd better buy one now before it's snatched.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.
