- BlendSauvignon Blanc and Semillon
Le Petit Cheval Blanc Bordeaux Blanc 2020
Cheval Blanc. The one and only. And guess what?! They make white wine! Now, in its seventh vintage and only its third to blend semillon into the sauvignon blanc, this wine is BEYOND RARE. 96 POINTS and built to last for years – this is shaping up to be the legendary estate’s best white EVER! Luckily, we snagged a tiny parcel of this elusive unicorn, to be had for only $149.95! That’s over 30% less than the suggested retail...YES!
We HAD to try this 82% sauvignon blanc and 18% semillon the moment it landed at our warehouse last week, direct from the Chateau. CHEVAL BLANC! More than ever before, we were straight up flabbergasted – wowing and ooohing all the while. This is a baby, to be sure, but with air, this is already a knockout and the best we’ve yet seen from this estate (for whites, at least!) Aromas of pure grapefruit, white peach, lemon zest, tarragon, mandarin blossom, stony flint, and sea spray just POP out of the glass, but this just washes over your mouth with laser-like acidity, more slightly tropical flavors of passion fruit, elderflower, and truly astounding length. WHAT. A. TREAT! For this price, this DEFINITELY is a cool special occasion wine that you’re going to want for your collection. Based on its rarity alone, it’s a no-brainer – but on taste, smell, and mesmerizing potential – this is an absolute must for collectors and enthusiasts alike!
