(1-2010) This bottle was also showing beautifully. It seemed so sweet and lush at first even if after a while the fruit started to fade a little. Wonderful jewel freshness. Reverberant on the palate. This really showed that in 1978 if the grapes were grown on a great terroir then there was enough stuffing, even if everyone had to wait so long for them to ripen.

(10-2004) Tested blind, not decanted. Intense coffee nose. Long afterwards, this slender wine is also tannic but keeps the smoothness in the final. It is surprising to find it so smooth and almost sweet, despite slightly drying tannins.

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"
