Wine Summary Image

Premier Grand Cru Classe

Powerful, without aggressiveness, spherical, silky, always with elegance and breed, a core of Cabernet Franc enveloped by Merlot, the wine of Cheval Blanc approaches the style of a Pomerol without quite resembling a Saint Emilion…

With its freshness and cashmere-soft tannins, it ages marvellously, expressing the effect of its terroir, which makes it more and more complex and subtle.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

A dark, intense red colour.

Aroma

While red fruit dominates, the intense bouquet reveals scents of wild berries, blackberry and blackcurrant, leading into fine woody hints.

Palate

The attack on the palate is vinous and the harmonious structure offers plenty of body in the mouth. The mid palate impression is one of outstanding fruit. The finish is remarkably long and fresh.

Winery Profile

Premier Grand Cru Classé (A)

A very fine Bordeaux property in St-Emilion. In 1832, Henriette Ducasse married Libourne négociant Jean Laussac-Fourcaud, bringing with her 12 ha/30 acres of land including part of the narrow gravel ridge that runs through Figeac and neighbouring vineyards and reaches Petrus just over the border in Pomerol. This became Ch Cheval Blanc, which, in the International London and Paris Exhibitions in 1862 and 1867, won the medals still prominent on its labels. In 1892, Albert reversed the order of his double surname, and it remained in the Fourcaud-Laussac family until 1998 when it was sold to Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH, and Belgian businessman Albert Frère. Pierre, one of the young Lurtons, was made régisseur in 1991.

The vineyard is of 41 ha, with 36 ha under vines: 55 per cent Cabernet Franc vines, 45 per cent Merlot, and no longer any Malbec. The average production is about 8,000 cases; Petit Cheval is the second wine. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc, a variety felicitously originally favoured by Jean Laussac-Fourcaud which has proved particularly well-suited to the soils of Cheval Blanc, gives the wines a deep colour and a rich, concentrated blackcurrant bouquet and flavour. Although excellent wines were made towards the end of the 19th century and before the First World War, the property's international reputation was made with the 1921, which had enormous concentration and sweetness. Other very successful wines were made in the 1920s, and even in 1934 and 1937, but its more modern fame was achieved with the rich, porty 1947. Consistently good wines have been made with few exceptions ever since, although, like other St-Émilions and Pomerols, they usually do not last as long as the top red wines from the médoc and the Graves.
