Tasted with the members of the SoDivin "family."
Beautiful brilliant color, without any sign of ageing. Somewhat discreet nose that opens progressively toward subtle perfumes of mushrooms, leather, coffee. But the most impressive is the mouth. Perfect balance, silky, velvety, full, rich,soft, subtle and with an infinite length. This has everything that one could want from a grand cru in full maturity. It deserves the highest score.

(03-2016) The 1990 Cheval Blanc is fast becoming my favorite modern-day vintage of this Saint Emilion estate and perhaps the 1990 is now exiting the slip-steam of the feted 1982. This is unequivocally a brilliant wine. The nose holds nothing back, a line of senses all doing the conga towards your olfactory senses: macerated dark cherries, exotic kirsch-like aromas, leather, mahogany bureau, touches of crème de cassis and herbs all vie for attention. The palate is full-bodied and cloaked in a silky, velvety texture that leaves you a little ga-ga. There is so much fruit ram-packed into the bravura of a finish. Moreover, there's just so much joie-de-vivre and decadence in this wine, but it never seems overpowering or ostentatious. This bottle came from perfect provenance, as it was served blind by winemaker Pierre Lurton at a private dinner hosted by a mutual friend in Bordeaux.

(04-2016) Extremely rich and smooth, but also notably appetising. This wine has been beautiful all its life. Dark and 'minerally' with a whiff of cordite. Wonderful combination of flattering richness and sweetness with freshness.

Cheval Blanc

Cheval Blanc is located in the town of Saint-Emilion, on the edge of the Pomerol appellation. Rated 1st Grand Cru Classé A, it shares the top ranking of Saint-Emilion with Château AusoneAngelus and Pavie. With the Premiers Crus Classés of the Médoc, they constitute the most prestigious estates of all of Bordeaux. Since 1998, Bernard Arnault and Albert Frère have been the owners with the wish to vitalize the Cheval Blanc estate "with respect for its history, as its heritage, and in total confidence in the teams in place. "


Cheval Blanc is one of the most regular wines in the world with the ability to be excellent at any age. The greatest vintages of the estate: 1921, 1945, 1947, 1949, 1950, 1953, 1955, 1959, 1961, 1964, 1975, 1982, 1985, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2000.


The percentage of grape varieties is atypical for the right bank of the Gironde but in reality it is in perfect harmony with the nature of the soil: Cabernet Franc (49%), Merlot (47%), Cabernet Sauvignon (4%). There is therefore a mosaic of grape varieties within the single plot of 37 hectares. The estate produces the "Grand Vin de Cheval Blanc" in red as well as a second wine "Le petit Cheval", which is available in red and white.


Powerful, without aggressiveness, spherical, silky, always elegant and racy in its Cabernet Franc gangue that surrounds the Merlot, the Cheval Blanc wine is close to a Pomerol, without completely resembling a Saint-Emilion ... >> To find out more: read the article "Cheval Blanc, Premier Grand Cru Classé A"
