1990 Cheval Blanc - Hedonist's Gazette, December 2004: The next course was a lobster dish drunk with a 1990 Cheval Blanc. It always amazes me how a chef can take a shellfish that one would think requires a white wine, and serve it in a sauce that works wonders. The Cheval Blanc 1990 is the greatest Cheval Blanc of the last twenty-five years, even eclipsing the 1982. It remains to be seen if the 2000 will ever be this remarkable. I would not hesitate to decant it for several hours in advance and drink it. While it may last another two decades, it is absolutely majestic at present.
