(01-2017) Magnum served blind initially alongside Monte Bello 1971. Wonderfully sweet, round and florally aromatic with a beautifully smooth texture. A brilliant wine, even if not a blockbuster, and one that I was given blind by owner Jacques Hébrard when I visited the château while researching The Great Wine Book in 1981. I'm delighted to be able to add a tasting note on it to our database – even if it is arguably more enthusiastic than explicatory. Still going strong.

(04-2002) Sweet, fragrant, elegant, stylish, lovely. My top wine at Cheval Blanc dinner (including 47, 59, 61, 64 and 70).

(05-2000) Not decanted. Dark red color. Medium intensity. Evolved. Very fine nose. Complex. Orange. Gingerbread. Lemon. Grapefruit. Wild strawberry. Caramel. Clean and supple attack, developing on a very, very smooth structure. Very slow, complex and smooth evolution, almost sweet. Final on fine and subtle tannin, totally surprisingly rich for a Cabernet Franc. Yield 18 hl / ha.

(02-1991) A rather meaty and rich wine with an abundance of developed fruit flavors. Deep ruby center with a garnet edge, and light stewed tomato, tobacco and orange peel aromas; full-bodied, with velvety tomato and tobacco flavors and a lovely, silky finish.

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"
