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
If a wine can be hedonistic and seductive at the same time, it would be the 1982 Cheval Blanc. I had the privilege of tasting this wine twice over the past 6 months and both times I fell in love with it from the first sip. It has the maturity and depth of a beautifully aged 30 year old while it maintains the freshness and structure of a wine at least 10 years younger. This is a perfect Cheval Blanc. Tasted in: Bordeaux, France. Maturity: Drink.
