Château Cheval Blanc
1er Grand Cru Classé "A"
Appellation St Emilion Grand Cru
Château Cheval Blanc Pierre Lurton, the manager of Cheval Blanc, ushers us to his office, where we are immediately subjugated by a breathtaking view of the vineyard through large windows. Cheval Blanc is an unquestionably outstanding estate. Above and beyond its location and climate, which give the wine – especially its tannin - a sublime flavour, the people who work here love what they do and seek to do it in the best way possible, with extreme attention to detail.
The present day Cheval Blanc estate had vines at least as far back as the 18th century, as shown by Belleyme’s map of the region dated 1764. Nearly a century later, the estate was adquired by the Fourcaud-Laussac Family, who owned it until 1998, when it was sold to Bernard Arnault and the Baron Albert Frère.
Château Cheval Blanc has had a greater number of outstanding vintages than any other classified great growths over the past century.
This admirable wine is powerful, soft, rich, round, and silky. It has tremendous fruit and elegance as well an exceptional quality from year to year. This timeless wine is like no other.

A a reflection of the Grand Vin, Petit Cheval is racy, elegant and very long in the palate. The Cabernet Franc makes here all the difference in terms of concentration and aromatic precision. The texture is as silky as Cheval Blanc and the tanins are as fine !
