Château Cheval Blanc
Producing phenomenal wines vintage after vintage, some being the most renowned wines in the world - the legendary Château Cheval Blanc lays at their forefront. Bernault Arnault and Albert Frère purchased the property in the late 1990s, sparing no expense the partners plan to make Cheval Blanc the greatest château on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. Classified as a Grand Cru Classé A-grade property, Cheval Blanc owns unarguably the highest plantings of Cabernet Franc in Bordeaux. Bordering the Pomerol appellation, with over half of their 39-hectares of land planted to Cabernet Franc, the estate consists of forty-five separate plots scattered across the region. The unique patchwork of an estate, alongside the high proportion of Cabernet Franc, accounts for the wine’s great complexity. A classically styled Cheval Blanc can be described by its rich, concentrated and intensely complex dark berry fruit and all spice flavors. Ten years or more of ageing will display the structured silky texture of the Grand Vin, Cheval Blanc at its best. A truly unrivalled wine.
