Château Cheval Blanc

Known all over the world, Château Cheval Blanc, a Classified Growth A, is one of the legendary wines of the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region. Cheval Blanc reigns over unique and rare terroir, enjoying a special position on the Saint-Émilion plateau. While Saint-Emilion is known mostly for its limestone formations, Château Cheval Blanc is located on the Quaternary alluvial deposits of L'Isle, a non-calcareous formation with a varied texture, combining gravel soils with equal proportions of clay. It is this special soil that makes the terroir of Cheval Blanc so similar to those of the greatest Pomerol Crus.

The presence of vines at Château Cheval Blanc is evidenced by ancient writings that date back to the 15th century. The property entered a new era in 1832, when it was acquired by Jean-Jacques Ducasse, President of the Court of Libourne, who purchased the parcels attached to Château Figeac. The marriage of Henriette Ducasse, daughter of Jean-Jacques Ducasse with Jean Laussac-Fourcaud, a wine merchant from Libourne, marked the beginning of a major modernisation of the estate's structure, with the addition of a network of walled and covered drains. The new owner would lead a revolution in the field by taking the decision, which would define the identity of Cheval Blanc: combining 50% Merlot, the emblematic grape variety of the Right Bank, with 50% Cabernet Franc. "The old wine of Figeac" was first marketed under the name Cheval Blanc in 1852. After a first gold medal received at the Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1878, Château Cheval Blanc obtained the ultimate recognition during the First Classification Saint-Émilion wines in 1954, when it was recognised as a Grand Cru Classé A.

With a vineyard that has remained unchanged in configuration since 1871, Château Cheval Blanc now oversees an exceptional and unique vineyard in Saint-Émilion, consisting of 39 hectares divided into 45 plots with vines aged 42 years on average.

Offering a great aromatic expression and rare complexity, the wines of Cheval Blanc reveal a great power on the palate, softened by the velvety structure of voluptuous tannins. An exceptional wine, Château Cheval Blanc has the unique capacity to be appreciated in its youth, by revealing all of its personality early on, while also showing a remarkable potential to age for almost a century.

The Second Wine of the property, Petit Cheval Rouge, offers a superb introduction to the excellence of Cheval Blanc, with classy wines that are powerful on the palate, generous with delicious fruit.

With its new winery designed by Christian de Portzamparc and inaugurated in June 2011, Château Cheval Blanc continues to pen the legend of the greatest wines of Bordeaux.
