The 1980 Cheval Blanc is a relative success for this mediocre vintage. Medium ruby, with a moderately intense bouquet of herbal, cedary, fruity scents, this wine has medium body, adequate concentration, and a supple, soft finish.

Though fading now, this light, silky red still shows some fresh cherry flavor, along with raisin, cedar and brown sugar notes. Drink now.--Cheval-Blanc vertical. –TM
