4 stars "(65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, made from 23% of the harvest) Real ripe berries nose - it positively blooms. Toasty, ripe, voluptuous and soft. Supple tannins but big and powerful for Petit Cheval. Drink 2012-2020." Best 2012-2020

" 90-92 points: This offering has often been an afterthought, but the 2000 possesses some of its bigger sibling's character offers sweet, concentrated, plush flavors, wonderful opulence, and super density. This beauty will be drinkable upon release, and will last for 12-15 years. Believe it or not, the 2000 Le Petit Cheval is better than some vintages of Cheval Blanc have been over the last two decades." Best 2003-2015
