Cheval Blanc

Premier Grand Cru Classé A (First Growth - Classed A) of Saint Emilion

The wines of Château Cheval Blanc

Bernard Arnaud and Albert Frère have owned the famous Chateau Cheval Blanc since 1998. Chateau Cheval Blanc is a Premier Grand Cru classé A (First Great Classed Growth) of St Emilion, alongside chateau Pavie, chateau Ausone, and chateau Angélus. The 37 hectares estate is located 35km East of Bordeaux (right bank), on the edge of the appellation Pomerol, alongside the wine estates La Dominique, La Tour Figeac, Figeac, Jean Faure, and Corbin  Michotte. Cheval Blanc vineyard is about 42 years old and is cultivated according to the sustainable viticulture principles. The soils are ranging from clay-gravel to sandy-gravel. In terms of red grape varieties, the chateau Cheval Blanc is producing: cabernet franc (49%), merlot (47%), cabernet sauvignon (4%). Since 2016, Cheval Blanc estate has also planted white grape varieties: sauvignon and muscadelle.

The Cheval Blanc domain offers 2 red wines and one white wine. The first red wine is called "Grand Vin de Cheval Blanc", the second wine is "Le Petit Cheval", and its equivalent in white is "Le Petit Cheval Blanc". The first wine is voluptuous and exotic, very rich and deep, with notes of ripe blackcurrant, plum, cherry, menthol and leather. Of great length, this wine is particularly rich and concentrated when it comes to the great vintages. These wines will reach their peak with between 10 and 30 years of ageing, and sometimes much longer, as for the vintage 1964 (50 years in the cellar) or the trio 1947 , 1948 and 1949 (60 years and over). The second wine, "Le Petit Cheval", which is not systematically produced every year (as in 2015 for example), benefits from the same qualitative attention as the great wine of the chateau Cheval Blanc, but it is less tannic, lighter in body, and more supple. It can be improved with 8 to 15 years of ageing time in the cellar. Chateau Cheval Blanc has often been praised by international critics (and rightly), for example when it received three times the best tasting score that can be, 100/100 from Robert Parker in 1947, 2005, and 2010. For the other great years, the marks have often been higher than 93/100. The great red vintages are: 2015, 20142011201020092008200620052000199819951990198519831982, 1964, 196119591953, 1949, 1948, and 1947. The white wine called "Le Petit Cheval Blanc" offers a wide range of aromatic notes including apple, citrus, pear and bergamot. The vines from which it is extracted are planted with a method called grafting-on on a plot of the Tour du Pin Figeac, bought in 2006. The first vintage that was marketed is 2014, which was an excellent year. Overall, the Cheval Blanc wines are luxurious and legendary, naturally driving prices up, but their excellent aging potential will make them an excellent investment.
