The Winery

Cheval Blanc

Firmly established in St. Emilion and a stone’s throw from Pomerol, Cheval Blanc wines are rich yet never heavy and are full of complex, powerful perfumes paired with textures often compared to silk and velvet. It's terroir on the border of Pomerol and St. Emilion produces wines with characteristics of each region with the smooth opulence of Pomerol and the flamboyance of St. Emilion making this wine a true treasure. And since every genesis needs its defining moment, it was the idea of marrying Merlot, the traditional variety used in Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, with the Cabernet Franc that gave birth to Cheval Blanc.

Vintages to look for are: 2012, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2005, 2001, 1995, 1990, 1985, 1983, 1982, 1964, 1955, 1953, 1950, 1949.

Tasting Notes

AP100
Powerful, intense, voluptuous Cheval Blanc that is the best Bordeaux red from this vintage. The wine is complete with a mix of herbs, blackberry, plum and hint of black truffle. Palate explodes with flavor without any heaviness or effort - seamless from the beginning to the end. Persistent finish that lingers for more than 20 seconds. One can enjoy its youthful exuberance but best in 5 to 8 years.
