Cheval Blanc 2022 Released
Kicking off the big gun releases for the 2022 campaign is Chateau Cheval Blanc. It is being offered by the international trade for £5,760 per 12×75, a 21.5% increase on the 2021 (£4,740). An important point to get excited about for buyers is that it is available at a 15% discount to the acclaimed 2016 vintage in a vintage where yields are down across the region.
It being very early doors, all the scores aren’t in yet (notably Neal Martin) however critics have highly praised this vintage’s wine.
James Suckling giving it a barrel range of 99-100 points and said that the wine ‘soars to new heights with its brightness and weightlessness’ and questioned if it might be the ‘wine of the vintage?’
Jean-Marc Quarin awarding it a perfect 100-points.
William Kelley (Wine Advocate) gave it a slightly lower score of (97-99)+ points but still considered it ‘one of the stars of the vintage.’
